Missional Dialogue: JAN2019, The Meanings of Missional

The Meanings of Missional

Last month saw the first in a series of events we're calling Missional Dialogue. Led by President James Furr, the group discussed the "Meanings of Missional." Church and ministry literature and practice has been filled with missional language for twenty years but any fair assessment will confirm that the concept is used in many and even conflicting ways.

The gathered assembly discussed core questions such as

  • What does the missional concept mean to me?

  • What are the implications of that understanding and use?

  • What is the difference between missions and missional?

  • Can I be missional without intentionally using the term?

  • How much does this really mean for my life and leadership?

More events are planned that will dig deeper into becoming a missional church. If you are interested in being notified of upcoming events, please click here. (We won't share or sell your contact info. Promise!)
