    Boston kick off for NAMB’s Send North America Experience tour

    The fall tour of the North American Mission Board’s (NAMB) Send North America Experience debuted Sept. 8 just blocks away from the site of the trigger event of the American Revolution and in a venue rich with significant history all its own, Tremont Temple Baptist Church. More than 1,100 attenders lined up around the block passing the final resting place of Paul Revere and dozens of other patriot’s headstones on their way to hear a message from David Platt, worship with the Passion Band and be challenged to live life on mission.

    Stephanie Copenhaver is not entirely sure why they keep coming back or why they showed up in the first place. Apart from an invitation through her kids and their friends, there was nothing else that drew six students two years ago—midsummer, no less—to “learn about Jesus” in a four-week study in July.

    Connecting Evangelism, Disciplemaking and Church Planting | ()

    For too many church leaders, one of the least clear areas of mission is engaging our people in evangelism. We can point to many causes for this challenge, but many times lack of evangelistic effectiveness goes back to leaders not providing a clear pathway forward and simple first steps in sharing the gospel.
