People are hungry to be used by God. Take a look at how Eric Mason mobilizes and equips his church to live on mission where they live and dwell after Sunday worship. Dr. Eric Mason is the Lead Pastor of Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia and President of Thriving, a ministry dedicated to aiding ethnic minorities to be resourced and trained for ministry to the urban context.

Eric talked about the importance of not compartmentalizing your departments into missions or evangelism or discipleship. He said, "Mission is the responsibility of the entire church."
