About-

How many ways can your church’s worship equip the congregation for its mission? Worship changes through the seasons, from Christmas, through Lent and Easter, and beyond. The way worship relates to your church’s mission should change, too. This book explores those seasonal changes by examining both worship and mission as aspects of union with Christ. Just as we are to follow Christ through the various stages of his life and work in worship during the church year, we can follow him in our mission through these same stages of his life and work.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Nick Monsma brings a fresh new voice into the worship conversation—a voice that needs to be heard. As a pastor-theologian, a musician, and most of all as a devoted follower of Jesus, Nick offers a well-balanced, accessible, and thoughtful consideration of the formulative nature of worship for God's mission (for which He has a Church!). Allow Nick to encourage you to ‘Talk about Jesus more.’”

—Paul Detterman, Senior Pastor, The First Presbyterian Church of River Forest, Illinois



“We are just starting to put Mission and Worship together in this new missional age for the church. Worship and Liturgy have long been paired. But when have we had a book putting all 3 together? Monsma stirs them together well, embedded in rich theology, solid missiology, and thoughtful liturgical suggestions. For those of you designing worship in this age—don't pass this by.”

—Jim Singleton, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary



“Wonderful! Worship, Mission, and the Church Year integrates theological reflection on our union with Jesus Christ with practical suggestions for shaping worship that is true to the missional nature of the gospel story. Focusing on key events in Jesus’ life, Nick Monsma provides an accessible resource—and gift!—to those planning worship that forms us in the character and ways of Jesus Christ throughout the year.”

—Chris Schoon, Lead Pastor, First Hamilton Christian Reformed Church
