The Meanings of Missional

Church and ministry literature and practice has been filled with missional language for 20 years but any fair assessment will confirm that the concept is used in many and even conflicting ways. The key objective of this gathering is to dialogue with peers and ministry teams about core questions like:

●  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?

This is an event for all church and ministry leaders, an opportunity to dialogue with peers and ministry teams. Registration is free.

WHEN: January 31, 2019, 9:00 am— noon

WHERE: Fellowship Hall of Willow Meadows Baptist Church, 4300-C West Bellfort Houston, TX 77035

Facilitator: Dr. James Furr, HGST President and Prof. of Church & Culture
