216: A Week in the Life of a Missional Community

If you try and treat life and the rhythms in a missional community like a light switch, something you suddenly flip on in your lives, you’ll be disappointed and frustrated. It takes time for any group of people to develop new rhythms and begin to truly feel as if they are part of a family.

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll teach you how to organize some things right off the bat and create space for the more organic rhythms to develop. And we’ll give you a peek at some sample calendars for a week in the life of a missional community.

It takes an extra measure of grace and patience when building an extended family, given the integrations of the various schedules and unique responsibilities everyone has. It also takes great intentionality.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How life in a missional community (MC) is both organized and organic.
  • The types of events and rhythms that need to be organized and those that don’t.
  • The 3 minimum, weekly touch points you’ll want to grow toward each week.
  • What a week in the life of two families in an MC really looks like.

From this episode:

“Basic ‘family values’ will start to form as you work out details regarding group participation, spontaneous hanging out, sharing simple meals, and participation in larger and smaller events—both organized and organic. No too missional communities look exactly the same. Be patient… it will happen!”
