Why this ‘missional thing’ scares pastors to death

Hey friend,
“You keep using that word… I do not think it means what you think it means.”
Remember that line from The Princess Bride? (I love that movie!) Well that just might be the case with the word “missional”. It’s something of a sexy buzzword within the church community, but what does it really mean? How do you know if you and your church community are being truly missional?
In this episode of the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll define “missional” for you–what it is and is not–and we may pick a few scabs and pour a little salt into some wounds…

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.
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!
ALSO check out... Being truly missional is all about embracing what the Gospel really means. If you’re worried you might not be as truly missional as you want to be, check out these resources that will help you get started.
The Gospel is the starting point to being missional and rightly motivating yourself, family and community on mission.
