201: Leadership Harmony in Missional Communities

Missional community life can be tricky and hard to sustain. Leading missional communities can seem even harder to navigate. How do you determine if you are like-minded enough to lead with another person or couple? How do you get started?

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’re gonna teach you how to determine who you should lead a missional community with and what should happen when you don’t agree on things.

When discussing leadership within new or existing missional communities, there are two roads we need to look at: 1. working with leaders you’ve developed and they too are now leading with you, and 2. putting a new team of leaders together.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • What missional community (MC) leadership looks like.
  • How MC leaders can build stronger relationships outside of a weekly meeting.
  • The best ways to bring up conflict as leaders and how to deal with it.
  • Getting leaders on the same page as to “what the mission is” that we are on.
  • How practicing the 23 “one-anothers” found in scripture is key to healthy leadership.

From this episode:

“God shows his grace on Earth through people, and leaders show others God’s grace and what it looks like to know and live out the good news of the Kingdom in every area of life. Your job in leading a missional community (or a church for that matter) is primarily that–not to be in charge and make all the decisions about what everyone else is supposed to do.”
