Spiritual Formation

“Too many Christian Leaders wrongly assume the Productive Life to be the pinnacle of Christianity.”

– Steve Logan, Founder of Mappings

False Summit
Many Christian leaders are convinced that becoming a strong Christian leader is mostly about advancing these three aims:

  1. Help people come to Jesus.
  2. Help them learn the bible.
  3. Help them steward their gifts.
We, at Mappings, are learning that these three dynamics, while critically important, do not represent the fullest of Christian maturity. There is much more for Christian leaders to understand.

For more information regarding our approach toward Spiritual Formation, please read our summary of the Critical Journey.

Critical Journey Summary
