“The church cannot storm the gates of hell by gathering around consumer needs. A shared life and the shared story that Jesus is King are its rallying points.” –The Church as Movement
Missional and community are two buzz words being used quite a bit in the church world these days. But what do they really mean, and how do they work together? In an upcoming webinar, JR Woodward and John Poitevent, Director of Missional Engagement HUB, will tap into these ideas and discuss what Woodward believes is the core of God’s purpose for the local church.
About the Speaker
As a church planter, activist, author and missiologist, JR is dedicated to serving people who desire to plant the gospel, make disciples and start new churches. He is the National Director for Church Planting with V3, author of Creating A Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World and co-author of the award-winning Church as Movement.
From the latter: Community is the container that carries God’s good news into the world, yet very few of us have experience with living into the shared life of community. So we have to learn about, experience and practice community. Disciples who covenant to a rule and rhythm of life cultivate a hospitable space for others to belong to and a platform for creating a missional-incarnational community. Community brings out of us new ways of relating to each other. Our beauty and brokenness converge as we seek to be the sent people of God together. –The Church as Movement
