Anthology magazine is a curated collection of writings by some of the world’s foremost authors, speakers and thought leaders. Each issue addresses topics relevant to the Great Commission Community. With varied focus from theological exegesis, personal, real-life stories, to practical examples, Anthology is published twice annually by Missio Nexus for the benefit of its members.
In 2021 our community focused its attention on the topic of innovation. Our theme has been well received – no doubt due to the many changes in our world today – but also because the Holy Spirit has been working in the hearts and minds of ministry leaders to bring about this eagerness for innovation.

In the Great Commission there is always risk. Yet implementing security management to deal with those risks can be complicated. As faithful followers of Christ we need to be equipped to go wherever he calls — even if that leads into danger. How we prepare for those difficult times (both spiritually and practically) will influence how we respond in crisis situations.
There are not many constants in life, but conflict with other people is one we all must face. Conflict handled appropriately is one way God develops and grows us. When handled poorly, sinfully, or not handled at all, you have a recipe for relationship disaster and ministry failure. How we handle our differences can be as important as the issues at stake.
