Where Then Shall We Live? Location as Fundamental Choice for Christian Discipleship, Worship, and Evangelism

This session raised the question as to whether some, if not all, of the ministries of the church might be enriched if they could be re-integrated around particular geographic locations. Specifically, this session will suggest the possibility that choosing where to live or what ministries of the church to affiliate with based on where one lives can be a fundamental act of Christian discipleship.

For many evangelical Christians, worship happens at church in the sanctuary, discipleship happens at home in small groups, and evangelism and ministries of compassion happen at various locations in specifically targeted programs. This session raised the question as to whether some, if not all, of these ministries of the church might be enriched if they could be re-integrated around particular geographic locations. Specifically, this session will suggest the possibility that choosing where to live or what ministries of the church to affiliate with based on where one lives can be a fundamental act of Christian discipleship.

Presented at the 2007 Calvin Symposium on Worship.
