In travels along an open road in a closed country and by immersion in the secret waters of law-breaking baptism, the Great Commission takes us to risky places – geographically, organizationally, personally.
We follow Jesus in the way of divine love so dangerous that it spared not even his life. Through the pages of Scripture, a theology of suffering and sacrifice emerges and culminates in the Gospel message, compelling us to serve a costly mission with faithful urgency in the face of dark times.
Redemptive risk combines business savvy with saving grace to create innovative evangelism tools. It pairs active compassion with grit courage to advocate urban renewal. And, humbled by the perseverance of those who have little comfort in this world, it dares each one of us to ask and pray: What is mine to do?
