Assembli’s mission is to build connections across the global movement of Jesus’ followers that will enable, launch and support bold breakthrough projects. We believe that each person is essential to what God is building, and we will see greater success once we assemble our unique resources together.
Calling the 99%
The old paradigm of having a select group of helpers go out into the world to help others, while the rest of us sit at home, is gone. There isn’t a Christian alive that is exempt from the command to make disciples, or indeed unequipped to do so.
In 2019, Lausanne Movement CEO, Michael Oh issued a widely shared apology to the Christian 99% from the 1% in Christianity Today. The basis was a better understanding of Ephesians 4:11–13, which teaches that what we consider professional ministry workers— the 1%—have been given by God to equip the 99% non-professional saints for Kingdom exploits. Assembli is issuing a call to action to the 99%—techie, nurse, construction worker, academic, home-schooling mom, doctor, Uber driver—that means you! You have a skill or resource that you’ve acquired or developed through interest, training, vocation or experience.
Assembli will get this resource from the sidelines to the frontline.
