Episode 8: Front Yard Mission in the Golden Gate City

Julie Dirkse is Gina’s guest on this episode of the Everyday Mission Podcast. Julie and her husband, Pat, followed God’s call on their life 10 years ago to move as missionaries and church planters into one of the most dangerous cities in America – Compton, CA. She shares their story about a city and a people they have fallen in love with as they live among them as neighbors and friends. It’s a story of everyday people following the Lord where He leads them and experiencing more of God’s goodness and grace than they could ever have imagined!

Exploring Life on Mission
Jesus’ strategy for mission was simple: know God, build a family, and pursue people who are open to Jesus together. As followers of Jesus, we want to imitate the life and leadership of Jesus and do mission the way He did. But often we feel stuck. Sometimes we feel insecure about our leadership or don’t really know how to gather people or what to say. Perhaps we simply feel busy with life or aren’t sure what our next step is. Or maybe our missional context feels particularly difficult.
If you want to learn how to practically live on mission in your ordinary life, this is for you!
