MEv 141 Lay Pioneering and Thriving in Mission


Lay pioneer ministry arises not from a central church initiative but from the sense of God’s call on the life of lay people in a wide range of contexts. What role do they play and what can we learn from them?

This study, based on interviews with lay pioneers in different contexts, explores the issues of vocation, discernment, freedom and guidance. It looks at how this ministry can thrive and how the church can thrive in attending to it.
