PRAXIS is a unique missions opportunity that offers participants the space to apply the formational and developmental lessons they are learning in a missional context. We often hear the phrase “My personal time with God must overflow to fuel my ministry”, but what does this look like?
We often live our Christian lives where our personal relationship with God feels disconnected from how we serve him. Jesus invites us to come to him and to learn from him (Matt. 11:28-29). In Jesus, we see the perfect union of being and doing; Jesus’ ministry activity always was an overflow of his rich and abundant connection with his Father. Through PRAXIS, we will experience and learn what it looks like to integrate our “being” and “doing” with God. We desire that this will result in the transformation of how we engage missionally with those around us for our lifetime.
How will we engage in God’s work?
While on PRAXIS, we will engage in a combination of formative spiritual practices, practical leadership training, and life-changing mentoring relationships. As we take steps towards transforming our approach to how we engage missionally with our contemporary culture, we will explore how God is at work in various marginalized communities in Canada (ie. youth at risk, refugees, Indigenous communities, etc). In partnering with local initiatives, we can learn from these local missionaries, and support the work that God is doing through them.
Do you feel like you’re living out of joyless duty, rather than an overflowing love of God and others? Do you want to go deeper in your faith and in how you participate in God’s mission?
