Equipping Christians & churches for whole-life discipleship in the world.

Life on the Frontline

April 8, 2012
08 Apr 2012

A six-session DVD resource for small groups to inspire and equip Christians to make a difference on their Frontlines.

We may be old or young; healthy or infirm; rich or poor; employed or not. We may be busy or bored; optimistic or pessimistic; radically cutting edge or relatively retro. Whoever we are, as Christians, we have at least one thing in common: we each have a Frontline.

Your Frontline: the place where you spend much of your time
Your Frontline: the place where you meet people who don’t know Jesus
Your Frontline: the place God has called you
Your Frontline: the place of possibility and potential

Often though, we don’t see ourselves, our workplaces homes, colleges and clubs in this light. But what might God want to do where we are day by day? How might he use us? How will we grow?

This creative and practical small group resource is a six-session DVD series for small groups seeking to help one another live fruitfully and faithfully for Christ in the daily places of life and work. Each session has a short film, discussion material, Bible reflections and stories illustrating how the principles have been worked out in real life. The sessions are:

  • Session 1: The Frontline Call – What is my Frontline and why does it matter?
  • Session 2: The Frontline Commission – What happens when life on our Frontline feels difficult?
  • Session 3: The Frontline Community – How do all our various church activities equip us for our lives when we are apart?
  • Session 4: The Frontline Concern – How do you know what to do on your Frontline?
  • Session 5: The Frontline Cry – How does our Frontline shape our prayers?
  • Session 6: The Frontline Commitment – How can we sustain our commitment to one another on the Frontline?

Imagine How We Can Reach the UK

January 29, 2011

licc-imagine-dvdThis DVD and the associated resources on this page will help you and your church community begin the journey of whole-life discipleship.

Real about your faith but wanting to make your faith more real?

Leading a good church but yearning to make a greater impact together?

Keen to integrate your faith with your whole life but finding 21st century life bewildering?

In the main 50-minute film Mark Greene explores the core reasons behind the church’s difficulties in envisioning, equipping and resourcing and supporting Christians for today’s world.

It’s a realistic but not pessimistic analysis of the state of the nation and the state of the church. He then goes on to propose a simple but radical way forward, focusing on two great biblical truths – the concern of the Creator-redeemer God for every aspect of our life and Jesus’ mandate to make disciples not just converts.

This DVD will, we hope, help you and your church begin the journey. And we hope, too, that you’ll become part of a growing number of people who are determined to work out how to live day-by-day as whole-life followers of Jesus and who are also determined to help others do the same.

1287492773-the-great-divide-coverIn this compelling essay, Mark Greene, LICC’S Executive Director, explores the stifling, pervasive, life-denying impact of the sacred-secular divide on Christian mission and living, and reveals how overcoming it can;

expand our vision,
inspire our mission,
release our churches,
broaden our minds,
enlarge our hearts,
nourish our souls,
thrill our spirits,
free our imaginations,

for faithful following and fruitful living in all of life.
