What is Advent?
The word “advent" is from the Latin word for “coming,” and as such, describes the “coming” of our Lord Jesus Christ into the flesh and also His promised second coming as Christ Triumphant.
Advent begins the church year because the church year begins where Jesus' earthly life began — in the Old Testament prophecies of His incarnation. After Advent comes Christmas, which is about His birth; then Epiphany, about His miracles and ministry; then Lent, about His Calvary-bound mission; then Easter, about His resurrection and the sending of the apostles; and then Ascension (40 days after Easter) and Pentecost, with the sending of the Holy Spirit.
The first half of the church year (approximately December through June) highlights the life of Christ.
The second half (approximately June through November) highlights the teachings of Christ.
The parables and miracles play a big part here.
That's "the church year in a nutshell," and it should help reveal how Advent fits into "the big picture."

To Fulfill the Great Commission

In His Great Commission, Christ instructed all of us, who once lived in the darkness of unbelief, to go out among the world and teach the saving truth exactly as He taught and to baptize in His Triune Name.

“And Jesus came and said to the apostles, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (English Standard Version, Matthew 29:18-20)
