Episode 25: On the Mission of the Church


What is the mission of the church? Is it to preach the gospel and make disciples—or is that too narrow? What about good works? What about seeking transformation for our neighborhoods—or is that too broad?

In this episode of Pastors’ Talk, Jonathan Leeman talks with Mark Dever about this important topic.
