What would change if you saw where you live, what you do and who you are as part of God’s great plan to build his church? 

This book will show you that wherever and whoever you are, you are sent. Discover how to play your part in God’s plan of redemption—whether by praying, giving or going. And get excited about building a kingdom that is constantly expanding, scattering and sending for the sake of the lost.

Written by Jim Essian, Lead Pastor of The Paradox Church, Texas.

There are action steps and reflection questions at the end of every chapter. Additionally, you can find discussion questions at the back, which makes this resource ideal for small groups. (A PDF version of the discussion guide is also available.)

This book is part of the Love Your Church series, a collection of thoughtful and practical books that will inspire every church member with a biblical vision of what it means to be a local community of God’s family. Church members can explore together what it means to belong, to welcome, to gather, to care, to serve and to honour one another, and to witness and send people out to spread the gospel.

Matt Carter

Vice President of Mobilization, SEND Network

In Send, Jim issues a compelling summons for churches to recapture a sending culture, championing the cause of Christ. With clarity and biblical fidelity, Jim charts a course for churches to multiply locally through strategic church planting and local missions, while simultaneously reaching out globally through dynamic engagement in frontier missions. This is a book that will stir your soul, enlarge your perspective, and spur you to joyful obedience as we labor together for the day when God’s glory covers the earth as the waters cover the seas.

Dan Steel

Elder, Magdalen Road Church; Ministry Program Director, Yarnton Manor, Oxford

Jim Essian has served the church beautifully well in writing this short book that packs a huge punch. Founded upon the character of our sending God and his vision for his world, Jim calls us, simply, to join with our God in his sovereign plans. This would be a great book to read for “normal” Christians (like me) who find it all too easy to either lose sight of God’s global rescue plan, or else lose confidence in the part that I can usefully play.

Jonty Allcock

Pastor of Globe Church, London; author of Lost, Hero and Fearless

This is a great book for all of us who are tempted to settle for a comfortable church life. We will catch a fresh excitement for our majestic mission and will be stirred up to see the part we can play.
