Missional Field Notes

Quotes, Examples, and Ideas from My Missional Frontier

Here is a brief, not exhaustive, check list of things to consider:

  • Be sure: Know that this is a God idea not just a good idea.
  • Vision: Seek and clarify a clear vision for the proposed Missional Community. First with the leaders of the group then with the members.
  • Explain: Clearly set out the idea and the vision.
  • Be patient: Not everyone will get it straight away. Don’t rush, take your time.
  • Room for everyone: Allow everyone in the group to contribute to the discussion.
  • Space: Allow space for reflection and prayer. Encourage each member of the group to listen to God and each other.
  • Opportunity to contribute to the vision: Allow everyone in the group to discuss and contribute to the vision. However don’t be sidetracked away from the core vision God has given you as leaders.
  • Opportunity to say no and move to a different group: Create a culture that allows people to move on positively and with dignity.
  • Trust: Trust the group, trust the vision, trust the process.
  • Pray: Lots and lots of prayer!!
