It’s hard for us to love our neighbors when we don’t know our neighbors’ names – Brad Brisco
While more and more people are less and less interested in the programs and activities of the church, missionally-minded people must learn how to lovingly engage people in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places that we inhabit. In this podcast from Exponential West 2016, Brad discusses the topics of biblical hospitality in and through our homes (1st place), understanding how God has placed us in a vocation for His missional purposes (2nd place), and what it means to identify, create, and support Third Places in our communities.
Join Brad at Exponential East 2017, where he will lead workshops on mission and will be speaking in the missional pre-conference.
