When the Members are the Missionaries: An Extraordinary Calling for Ordinary People
by A. Wayne Schwab

This book (203 pages) extends the popular notion of “mission” to congregation members as they bring love and justice in deed and word to each of their daily arenas – with God’s help:
Part One describes stories of fifteen ordinary people living one of their daily missions.
Part Two describes ways for congregations to organize themselves and ways for leaders to help the members to live out their missions every day.  Congregations take as their primary purpose or vision supporting their members in their daily living as Christians.  Congregations adopting this vision understand that they “live into it” step by step, year by year rather than by simply adopting it at a board meeting.
