Missional Church Made Simple

Ben Sternke comments on this video:

The only thing I would add is that the church doesn’t simply send out individuals to embody and proclaim the good news, but that the church needs to be equipping individuals-in-community to do these things. I firmly believe what Steve Timmis and Tim Chester say in their book Total Church: “Mission must involve not only contact between unbelievers and individual Christians, but between unbelievers and the Christian community.”

The church must be a community of love, and also be seen as a community of love. You can’t show people a community by yourself. Other than that one thing, I think the video above does a great job delineating the difference between “attractional” church and “missional” church.

Add your thoughts over at his blog…
