Maybe You’ve Never Really Tried “Missional”

Many church leaders think they’ve tried “missional community” before, and it failed. But actually… maybe they haven’t. Often, they’ve only tried more religion and new “DO to BE” activities with hipper language. That won’t get it done!

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we look at the difference between talking a good missional game and really living in a community that is radically focused on discipleship as a lifestyle.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • One of the most common reasons that missional communities fail.
  • Why our best intentions at living on mission often turn into new “law”.
  • The difference between religion and the gospel of grace.
  • How to get the help to make authentic missional living a reality.

Get started here…

why you never tried missional

From this episode:

“Often folks that say they’ve tried to start missional communities actually only tried decentralized religious activities. They lay out a list of what folks are supposed to DO when they get together (all of this quickly becomes and feels like LAW), and they wonder why no one is that into it… and especially their not-yet believing friends who really want very little to do with these supposed new religious activities.”
