Missional Field Notes

Quotes, Examples, and Ideas from My Missional Frontier

I’m convinced we need to start new churches that move beyond a grand launch Sunday with a great preacher, a good band, and an attractive children’s ministry. The church is twisting and turning under the pressure to be relevant and more attempts to be relevant are not the answer. Our neighborhoods need community-organizers that gather people into God’s mission through the ongoing incarnational work of Jesus.

This might sound like a pithy statement, but it’s a dynamic and painful process. Leadership in this way requires a re-learning, a rediscovery of what made the first Century church so movemental. God wants to birth something new and vital but the labor process can be intimidating.
