>What’s A Missional Church? Two-minute explanation!

>

Author: Jack Hager

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."

  1. >That's interesting. It sounds good, too but I'm unsure what to think of it because I've heard the whole dispute between traditionalists and the "emergent church" on the use of that term "missional" and how it is used. I really don't know what to think other than that if the church of any kind is preaching the Gospel, reaching the lost and loving the brothers, it is doing it's job.Maybe I'm simplifying it too much. What do you think?

  2. >Becky…"emergent" is like "baptist," doesn't mean anything without context. Thankfully (in my view) emergent has had it's day and is fading away (again, there are different types of "emergent," but I'm glad to see it go bye)…"missional" is more than a buzzword, and I think it is much more great commission oriented than the "build a big church and a neat program and watch people come to us"
