Mission Creep

The Five Subtle Shifts That Sabotage Evangelism & Discipleship

Larry Osborne

Evangelism and discipleship aren’t rocket science. When Jesus sent out a ragtag team from Galilee with the expectation that they would evangelize and disciple the world, they pulled it off as a natural and spontaneous outworking of their faith.

Yet 2,000 years later, this same natural and spontaneous process has been turned into a complex and highly programmed skill left to the professionals. In this free resource, pastor and author Larry Osborne exposes what’s gone wrong and the five subtle shifts that sabotage our best efforts to reach the lost and bring them to full maturity.

Key highlights:

  • What happens when we count and report the wrong things.
  • Why too much knowledge can be a bad thing.
  • God’s game plan for fighting the culture wars.
  • Why assimilation and membership are meaningless.
  • What Protestants failed to learn from Roman Catholics.
