The originator of this website is Paul Heppleston; you are welcome to email him here.
The impetus for setting up the site came from a number of factors.
1It's because I have first-hand experience and knowledge of (and enthusiasm for) the Bolivian initiative, that I support the concept of Integral Church and Integral Mission in any way I can - because I believe it is from God. 2 I am passionate about ecumenical ventures and churches that are prepared to 'take risks for God'. 3 In my local town in England two of the Reformed churches have been exploring the possibility of coming together as one church - an LEP. As part of this process they are going back to basics and asking themselves questions such as : ----What is church? ----How can we best serve this town and 'be Jesus' in the community? ----How can we be a more effective witness to the people of this community as one gathered church rather than 2-3 separate, similar churches?'
I believe that developments such as this are the true way forward and incorporate into them many of the ideas brought together in this website about integrated mission - something which doesn't have to be in far-off lands, but equally apply to one's own backyard, the communities where we live in whatever country, third-world, first-world, westernised or not.
