Jesus commanded his followers with a simple message to care for the least, the last, the lost, and the lonely. But that simple message can sometimes feel very…complicated.
Thoughtfully loving our neighbor now includes phrases such as “social entrepreneur”, “impact investment”, “when helping hurts”, and “social investment.” But this is good. In addition to having a heart for mission, we should have a head for mission as well. Understanding the current research, best practices, and missional theology helps churches achieve a greater impact in caring for the widows and orphans that Jesus commanded us to love.
This is part of the unique value proposition of Innové Studios. There is a great potential for churches to build powerful congregation-driven engines that intentionally launch and scale fresh ideas and solutions that empower young social entrepreneurs.
Development in this area could significantly transform the mission thinking of churches over the next 5-10 years! It could dramatically enhance the impact of churches with a heart to shine the love of Christ into their communities.
Innové Studios is a pioneering model for churches. The next couple of years will require boldness, ingenuity, patience, flexibility, and most of all, prayer, as it is in the critical stage of validating the model to bring it to scale. So thank you so very much for your support and for your prayers.
