Missional Communities: The Rise of the
The missional movement has been at the forefront of many Churches’ conversations for the past few years, and best-selling author Reggie McNeal has been the go-to source to help explain what some claim, “the biggest development in Christianity since the Reformation.” Now McNeal is back with the third book in the trilogy that’s been helping to define and illuminate this popular movement. MISSIONAL COMMUNITIES (Wiley, Jossey Bass Imprint; Sept 2011;978-1-118-10182-7;$24.95), which examines the natural outgrowth of the move toward a missional orientation: the deconstruction of congregations into very small Christian communities.
For all those thousands of churches and leaders who have followed McNeal's bold lead, this book details the rise of a new life form in churches. Drawing on his twenty years of leadership roles in local congregations and his work over the last decade with thousands of clergy and church leaders, MISSIONAL COMMUNITIES discusses how to move a church from an internal to an external ministry focus. It outlines an alternative to the program church model that is focused on projects and passions of the congregants.
“Missional church is not about ‘doing church’ better – at least, not the way we’ve ‘done church’ in North America,” McNeal says. “It’s about developing communities that helps people to see all of life as a way to be engaged with the mission of God in the world.”
MISSIONAL COMMUNITIES will help all those who read it to learn how new forms of post-congregational life are rising up, creating groups of people who want to serve others with their faith, not just go to church for a weekly set of spiritual goods and services.
