Doing Church Inside Out: A conversation with Mike Lehew of Mobile Missions Network
During a week of protests and riots, a small crowd began to gather at the parking lot of Reasors in Sapulpa. Rumors and messages of concern began going out: was our small town suburb about to get a taste of what was happening in nearby Tulsa? But then the worship music began playing. Small groups of just a few people dotted the space in the parking lot, where people would pray with you if you needed, or just chat if you wanted. It wasn't a protest—it was a ministry, and one of the group is Mike Lehew of Mobile Missions, and we're talking to him today about what church is beginning to look like after COVID-19 and how his ministry is embracing the idea of going beyond the church walls to reach a community that sorely needs to hear their message.
