What is a Missional Community?
“Missional Communities are exactly what they sound like. Communities of people on mission together. They are like small groups, but not. They are like prayer meetings, but not quite. They are like little churches gathered and sent together to accomplish the mission that Jesus has given us to reach a specific city/region. We’re a bunch of real people who want to love and follow Jesus by being actively committed to living a ‘sent’ life in the context of community.”
What is Missional?
“Jesus told us to go into all the world and be his ambassadors, but many churches today have inadvertently changed the “go and be” command to a “come and see” appeal. We have grown attached to buildings, programs, staff and a wide variety of goods and services designed to attract and entertain people.”
“Missional is a helpful term used to describe what happens when you and I replace the “come to us” invitations with a “go to them” life. A life where “the way of Jesus” informs and radically transforms our existence to one wholly focused on sacrificially living for Him and others and where we adopt a missionary stance in relation to our culture. It speaks of the very nature of the Jesus follower.” – Rick Meigs
