Proactive and Reactive Mission

What is the balance between the proactive and reactive side of mission?

The Role of Redemption Groups


What are the goals and major components of redemption groups? Abe Meysenburg shares that the goals of redemption groups are that we would come to understand that sin is a finger wagging accusation against God, that our understanding of the magnitude of what Jesus has done for us on the cross would increase, and that we would know what right worship looks like in the moment of temptation. This is accomplished through three main components: reading the book “Redemption” by Mike Wilkerson, preaching through the Exodus narrative, and group counseling.

How to Transition to Missional Communities


How do you transition to a missional community structured church? Jeff Vanderstelt shares that the starting point is theologically convicted leadership, new metrics for success, leadership humility, and new language. The three main approaches to transitioning that are covered in this video are: the yeast approach (ex. pilot groups), organ transplant approach (ex. ending a few existing programs to make way for missional communities), and the wineskin approach (ex. transitioning small groups or Bible studies to become missional communities). Video content by Jeff Vanderstelt.

Purpose of the Gathering


What is the importance of the Sunday gathering for a missional community structured church? Jeff Vanderstelt shares that the gathering serves three primary purposes: exhortation, encouragement, and empowerment. Gatherings remind people of the truth of who God is and what He’s done in Christ, encourages through preaching and sharing stories, and equips in the gospel. Preaching and communion are central to the weekly rhythms of the gathering as the gospel is applied to all of life. Video content by Jeff Vanderstelt. Production by Todd Morr.
