13 Jun Kathy Maskell – Back to Jesus and His Mission
The Missional Leaders Meeting was a gathering of leaders from across missions and church multiplication to empower, equip, and encourage missional kingdom work. Kathy Maskell talks about going back to Jesus and His Mission. John Wimber once said, “There is no ministry but the ministry of Jesus.” and Kathy explores what this looks like today in her talk.
