Missional Community

A group of any size that connects with unchurched people in a neighborhood, community or region around a specific need, e.g., neighborhood block parties or “dinner church,” ministering to the needs of homeless persons in an area, providing a safe place for abused women and children, etc.

A Pathway to Starting a New Missional Community

  1. Begin with a dangerous prayer: Lord, use me.
  2. Assess the needs/interests in your mission field.
  3. Communicate the needs/interests to your congregation and create awareness (videos, sermon series).
  4. Cultivate ideas and leadership using FAN (see the webinar below).
  5. Network both inside and outside the church.
