|Most of us who know and follow Jesus want to tell others about him, to share our faith. We want to live life on mission, obeying Jesus' final command to us: "Go into all the world and make disciples."
But when it comes to actually engaging in evangelism, we hesitate. We get intimidated, uncertain, or even confused. Sharing our faith should be natural and easy, but it isn't always.
Life on Mission offers clear Bible teaching designed to empower you to share your faith with people right in your own neighbourhood. Pastor Tim Harlow walks you through topics like how to connect with unbelievers, how serving others can open their hearts to the gospel, and how paying attention to your own spiritual growth can strengthen your witness.
People who really matter to God are all around you, and God has given you the incredible assignment of inviting them to come home. Life on Mission will inspire and equip you to do that.
Dr. Tim Harlow started his first preaching ministry in the south suburbs of Chicago in January of 1990 at Parkview Christian Church; a church of 150 people in a heavily unchurched area. Since then, Parkview has grown into a multi-site church on mission, reaching thousands of people every weekend.
Tim and his wife, Denise, have three beautiful daughters and two awesome sons-in-law: Rachel (Ash), Lauren (Tommy), and Becca, all of whom are involved in ministry where they live.
"An outstanding guide to a life of meaning and fulfillment." - Lee Strobel, best-selling author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith
"Im so happy to be on mission with Tim in Chicagoland. The challenge before us is enormous, but we are committed and believe that the harvest is ripe. What we need is a way to help our people understand how they fit into the picture. Life on Mission is just the ticket. It brings home the reality of the situation, which is that if ordained pastors are the only ones doing ministry, were in real trouble! Bringing Gods love to every person in Chicago, America, and our world, will depend on every Christian understanding this mission and living it out, right where they are." - Wilfredo Choco DeJesus, Time Magazine 2013 100 Most Influential People in the World, Author of In the Gap
"Life on Mission will do more than inform you, teach you and encourage you; it will move you. I dont know about you, but thats what I need. We all too easily end up living life on accident, or life oncruise-control, but Jesus is inviting us to live life on mission and be a part of turning this world upside down." - Kyle Idleman, Southeast Christian Church, Author of Not a Fan and Gods at War
