This story came about after I learned that my home church, First Redeemer Church, would be sending a mission team to a church plant in Boston. I had recently co-led a mission team of my own all over the New England region. So, my interest was piqued.
When I discovered the Boston-area church was a part of the North American Mission Board’s Send Network, I thought that there could be a valuable story here. Pastor Chris Causey and his team at Encounter Church proved to be incredible leaders doing great work in and around Boston.
Be careful with the book of Acts. The Holy Spirit just may use the stories of early church missionaries to help you realize that He can do with you now what He did with them then.
That is exactly what happened to Chris Causey, pastor of Boston-area church plant Encounter Church. As Causey read the accounts of Paul’s missionary journeys, he began a thought experiment.
