What if...

  • We, in Christian Unions, started to think of everything we do as missional?
(We do already think this way - but for all the positive signs and good outworkings of this I'm convinced that there is a need to go up a gear - Mark Driscoll gave this critique to Newfrontiers, and whilst in some ways I do think UCCF as a mission agency is ahead of Newfrontiers being intentially missional and engaging with culture there is no room for complacency and plenty of room for progress)
  • We abolished 'CU Evangelism Secretary' because the CU President is responsible for evangelism...
  • Everything we did was tailored towards intentionally driving us to mission?
  • Mission was the focus of our prayer?
  • Each week we could share the story of how people became Christians?
  • We understood that having the Bible taught was about transforming and equipping us for mission as lovers of Jesus?
  • We engaged with the false gospels preached on our campuses, of acceptance, shame, ambition, salvation by graduate job, security, money,...
  • We engaged with the fears and hopes that people have - which the gospel has better answers for...
  • We did mission weeks based on evangelistic preaching series on Job, Ecclesiastes, Ruth, Song of Songs - done right, publicised right...
