“Ordinary Churches X Ordinary People = Extraordinary (Mission Awakening) Church Movement
[Hong Kong, 13 Nov]
The First Hong Kong Mission Summit by CCMN was completed on 8 Nov. During the 3-day summit, attendees listened to many encouraging and thought-provoking stories of ordinary people and ordinary churches doing missions at day sessions, workshops and open night sessions. It also brought attendees to realize that everyone belongs to part of the Christ-driven Mission Movement which takes priority than personal call, individual ministry or even church development. It generated the concept of CCMN 3.0, “Movement as Hub”. Pastor Paul Ma started the Summit by presenting an enlightening scripture, 1 Peter 2:9, to remind attendees that they were the chosen common people to proclaim the acts of God.
Ordinary People Engage in Missions
Kwan, the Macao Missionary, came from single family and used to be weak at self-discipline and academic results. But his obedience to God’s call brought a new light to the gospel work in Macao with his persistence. After all, God choose the foolish idea to bring out great things. As Pastor Danny of Shepherd Community Church remarked, “when a guy has given chances, role models and trust, he can find a value in his life that worths clinging to.”
