BOOK NOTES: Developing the Missional Church: Essays from the Reformed Reviews
“I have come to use the language of “missional church” to describe the manner of church life and identity necessary for the churches of North America as we move into the uncharted waters of a post-Christian and postmodern world. It is not about what ventures the church sends out, but about how the church itself is a “sent” community. It is about mission as the essential character of the church. The missional church is one that knows that its life is always undergoing renovation and is willing to receive the impact of its founding story over and over again.”
Thanks to Rev. Bob Houser, Executive Presbyter / Stated Clerk of Central Nebraska Presbytery for this recommendation.
