182: What Does a Missional Community Need to “Do” Together?

Other than a weekly meal and hangout, what does a missional community need to do together? Are there set patterns for being together, or are we just trying to fit everything into a neat little once-a-week box?

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we discuss what a missional community is supposed to do from week-to-week. This is surprisingly simple, yet powerful!

Too often what is labeled as a Missional Community is just a renamed, traditional small group or Bible study together. Maybe there’s an occasional service project added in. But what if a missional community actually lived like a family with both organized and organic rhythms?

That’s what a missional community needs to do together.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • A working definition for what a missional community actually (biblically) is.
  • What the mission of a missional community is and always has been.
  • The organized and organic rhythms of a healthy missional community.
  • How to include and balance the involvement of our kids in community.
  • 6 natural rhythms of a missional community that fit every context.

Missional Community Do Together

From this episode:

“Structuring your missional community life and time like a family with family rhythms takes into account the needs of everyone. A few organized family rhythms will perpetuate and facilitate numerous organic opportunities to BE a family and do a lot of normal life stuff together. Don’t over-complicate things!”
