In a cultural moment that is growing hostile towards the Church, it’s becoming easier than ever for Christians to slip into mission drift.

“Without careful attention, faith-based organizations will inevitably drift from their founding mission. It’s that simple. It will happen.” – Peter Greer

Out of defensiveness and self preservation, it can become easy for us to turn our mission field into a battle field, where the focus and goal shifts from reaching the lost to defeating them in political and social battles.

This isn’t to say Christians should not have an influence on the culture, far from it. It is an admonishment to walk cautiously in these times and keep the main thing the main thing. It is encouragement to avoid the extremes of both the far-left and far-right, and ensure the main thing we are radical about is the preaching Gospel and making disciples.

In this final episode of the negative World Series, Aaron Salvato, Brian Higgins, and Mike Doyle discuss how we can have wisdom while living in the negative world.

Mike Doyle is the founder and lead pastor of Movement Church / New York City. He moved to NY as a missionary, and beginning with a bible study in the basement of a coffee shop in the west village, planted the church he now pastors in Mid-town Manhattan.

Aaron Salvato is the founder GoodLion Ministries & the GoodLion Podcast Network, and also serves as CGN’s Content Strategy Director. He and his wife Brooklynn currently serve Jesus in Oklahoma.

Brian Higgins is the co-founder of the GoodLion Podcast Network & GoodLion Ministries. He has been in pastoral ministry since 2012, and is currently working towards planting a church in New Jersey.

Aaron Salvato and Brian Higgins are here to talk about Jesus, faith, and the Christian Life. A show filled with powerful interviews, fascinating theological deep-dives, and a never-ending stream of questions, there’s always something to discover on The Good Lion Podcast.
