Surprise - If you call yourself a follower of Jesus, he'd call you a missionary!
You may never go halfway around the world, but because of God's work in you, you are on mission. As everyday missionaries, God has sent us to live out his Great Commission in the ordinary, all-too-busy, and even mundane moments of our lives.
But what does an everyday missionary do?
Where and when does everyday mission happen?
How can you possibly share the gospel - without killing your relationships?
A Field Guide for Everyday Mission answers these and more for individuals, churches, groups, and organizations. Each day's reading includes an immediately practicable biblical principle and a few ways to help you live it out. By the end of Day 30, you'll have 101 different ways to demonstrate the gospel.
With stories from Steve Timmis, Jeff Vanderstelt, Mark DeYmaz, Mary DeMuth, Rick McKinley, and Lance Ford, pastors and practitioners Ben Connelly and Bob Roberts Jr. have created a tool for anyone ready to jump into the grace-filled mess of everyday mission.

"This book will challenge you to become a missionary, right where you live, and not leave evangelism to the so-called 'professionals'..."
"Ben and Bob bring to the table different perspectives, different generations, different stories, and different experiences. But they are unified in something far deeper: a gospel-saturated, Spirit-reliant, urgency and passion for God's mission, which can be—and must be—carried out in more normal settings than most of us realize. My hope is that God uses this book to open eyes, change our collective posture toward God's call, and inspire many lives on mission, for the sake of the gospel"
"The world will be a better place as we begin to practice these ideas in our
daily life rhythms"
The Austin Stone
"Bob Roberts and Ben Connelly have given the local church an incredibly helpful and practical guide to doing mission that will equip everyone from the seasoned practitioner to the brand new believer. It is simple and straightforward, yet it has the power to change both your neighborhood and the world for Christ."
"If you find that 'missional talk' can be a bit vague then this is the book for you. It’s an accessible guide to missional thinking. But even better, it will help put it into practice."
