Neighborhood Ambassadors are simply disciples of Jesus who share God’s heart in their various “neighborhoods"—whether those be at home, in the workplace, at school, or elsewhere. As St. Paul writes, “We are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us” (2 Cor. 5:20).
By virtue of his baptism, every Christian is already an “ambassador for Christ.” As Jesus says, “You are the light of the world”; not “you should be” or “you’d better be” but you are. This is an identity that you already have as a member of the priesthood of the baptized—whether you acknowledge it or not!
If you want to grow in your identity as a Neighborhood Ambassador, we're starting a 10-week training in October.
After an initial workshop (time TBD), the training will comprise three parts:
- Completing a series of 10 "missions," along with a partner
- Viewing the Joining Jesus on His Mission curriculum from Pastor Greg Finke
- Engaging in periodic debrief sessions with Ambassadors from the cohort
As a result of this training, participants will be more cognizant of what it means for them to a Neighborhood Ambassador, and more confident to share God's heart with their neighbors.
