Ways into Small Missional Community

"Many of the small missional communities that I work with seem to be have flickered into life in the dreams of one or two visionary people. But there’s very good reason to seek company, even at this early stage. The project will almost certainly have greater vitality and resourcefulness if the vision is shared and shaped by a few others - perhaps even just 2 or 3 people who will be part of the project with you and who will love it and commit to it, rather than just you being the one person blazing a lone trail. "

EMERGINGCHURCH.INFO is free. And that's the way it should be - but to keep it that way we desperately need some funding. Why not take a look at our plans for the future and see if you might be able to help with a donation or by passing on this info.

One way you can always help is to pray for the work of this website.


A flurry of questions fired at...

" Where are you at? Behind a desk, in Christchurch, New Zealand. Beside me builders saw, bang, crash - as the church builds a cafe and more community space. When I am not here (church pastor) I am at Laidlaw College, lecturing in areas of mission and leadership. It's a fascinating mix: being with people in journey of mission, yet reflecting in terms of the wider tradition."
