About This Message Series

Before any great expedition the explorers must take time to get ready. They must take stock of all their supplies to make sure that everything is set and in place, but ultimately all their work is in service of going on the expedition. At the beginning of our Next 40-year journey as a family of faith, we believe it is time to go. In Acts 1:8, we read, “…and you will be my witnesses…” This is Jesus’ call to go. This is His call to explore, to begin the expedition. His disciples spent three years with Him getting ready. They spent the past 40 days with Him getting set. Now they are called to go. Now they are called to explore. Jesus desires this calling to be so clear, He even provides the map for the expedition. He tells His disciples that they will be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Why does Jesus specifically note these places? What is their significance? Does the map Jesus provided to His disciples still have an application in today’s church? These questions will be answered as we track this expedition and examine a scene from each location on Jesus’ map. We will take note of how it continues to provide direction for the journey to which Jesus is calling His church at the Chapel as we embark on our Next 40-year journey.
