Insight 187: “Transformation happens when God’s people are conformed into the image of Christ—resulting in the gospel renewal of lives, communities, and cultures. It makes sense to believe that if people are being transformed to embody the character and competencies of Christ, tangible change will result in the communities these transformed believers inhabit.

Insight 181: “Mobilization happens when God’s people own the lostness of a defined people in a defined place. In our last exercise, we defined our personal, corporate, and city COA.
