A missional community (MC for short) is a family of servant missionaries sent on mission by God as disciples who make disciples.
WHAT IS A MISSIONAL COMMUNITY?
A missional community is much more than a weekly event. MCs gather together at different times throughout the week to fulfill Jesus' mission of being disciples who make disciples. Together we learn how to worship and submit to Jesus in all of life by learning how to love one another as family, worship Jesus as servants who serve others, and share the good news of Jesus Christ as his sent missionaries.
Every missional community identifies a group of people whom they believe God is sending them to love, serve, and share Jesus with. It could be a neighborhood or network of relationships. Some choose to love and serve local schools, while others will identify people they already are in regular relationship with. We want to see every aspect of our city blessed by God's people: business, arts, education, sports, recreation, and social services.
TRY A PILOT MISSIONAL COMMUNITY
A Pilot Missional Community is an 8-week journey, led by Jeff Vanderstelt, devoted to learning the fundamentals of missional community life. Each week we will share a meal together, receive teaching over the material, and participate in group discussions to help learn and apply what God has in store for us this coming season.
We call it “Pilot” Missional Community because, like the first episode of a new TV series, you are testing out the concept and trying to learn more. You can’t script it all out or pretend to know all the twists and turns the plot will take. Real life is like that, and so is life on mission. Life on mission means following the Holy Spirit, together, as he leads you each day.
If you're feeling called to lead a group or to open up your home to host a group for a leader, please email Josh Grimes.
