Lost & Found #6 'Presence'
Creating a Christian Presence in our Community • February 14, 2016 • R. Chip Denief
1st Century Christians understood their call to 'Go' and make disciples for Christ. In order to successfully accomplish this task the Christians did not retreat from culture, instead, they maintained an active presence within their community. Likewise, Christians today must be present in their community in order to have any opportunity to impact others with the Gospel.
