120: What Is Missional? And Why It Scares Most Pastors To Death

We still hear a lot of “missional” talk these days… It’s the sexy phrase in the church world. But what is truly missional? What does it mean, and is your church or small group really all that missional? In this week’s episode of Lifeschool, we’ll define it for you–what it is and is not–and we may pick a few scabs and pour a little salt into some wounds… Let’s get started!

Many of our friends (like you) are working in churches, or a part of a small group or “missional community” that are trying to figure out if they are really doing this right? Can you relate?

Is this whole “missional” thing just a passing church fad, or is there really something more to it?

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Where this term missional comes from, and a true definition (from the Bible)
  • Why all of this scares A LOT of pastors and elders to death!
  • What “missional” is NOT
  • Is being a missional church really a new thing?
  • Steps to take to begin to move your church or community toward an abundant missional life and ministry.

Get started here...

what is missional?

You really can get the equipping that you need to break old patterns and lead others on mission. If you’ve never been discipled in a way where the gospel was applied and transformed every area of your everyday life, you will need to humble yourself and start slow. It’s ok… the journey starts now. Your family, neighbors and your church will thank you!

Each week the Big 3 will give you immediate action steps to get you started.
