Next Steps and Tools to help


We are so thankful you have chosen to join with us in the Local Mission Lab Primer.  If these videos have been helpful, i hope that you will consider joining the full lab course. The Full Local Mission Lab is packed with some of the best content we have created. This content has been a part of our live “Intensive” trainings for the last 6 years and we have seen hundreds of leaders and pastors, just like you, take and apply the concepts and strategies we will walk through and they have seen success.  The problem is it is a lot to take in in such a short time, which is why we are so excited to be releasing the content in an online course where you can move at a pace that suits you.

We hope this is a great tool for you and your team.  The course is broken down in two main sections:  the theological and the practical.  We set it up this way because as leaders, we have to deal with both.  The theological and philosophical modules will lay the foundation for the more practical and application based modules.

 Please use the comments section at the bottom to share ideas or ask questions.  You can also email me directly at doug.phillips@forthecity.org.

We are also available to talk though more detailed strategies, provide systems to improve your strategy, and even come and do trainings and planning sessions with your team.  If you are interested in any of these, please email me.  We hope you have been encouraged and challenged by the Local Mission Lab Primer and that it pushes you to fall more in love with Jesus in the process.  Thanks again for joining the Local Mission Lab Primer.
