If you want to take significant action toward engaging culture, the Journey Guide will help you accomplish this.
Here are a few highlights and questions from the journey guide that I believe have great value for you and your small group, missional community, launch team, church plant, etc.
Engaging culture checklist:
- serving the least and the lost
- building redemptive relationships
- praying with and for others
- discerning spiritual openness
- sharing the gospel
Discussion questions for you and your team:
- What are you already doing?
- What’s going well?
- What do you hear God saying to you?
- What reflections do you have about this chapter?
Guided prayer (ask God these questions):
- How can we engage the culture around us?
- Who would you have us reach?
- How can we serve as Jesus served?
- What needs to change in us?
- How are you serving the least and the lost?
- How are you building redemptive relationships?
- How are you praying with and for others?
- How are you discerning spiritual openness?
- How are you sharing the gospel?
That’s a quick “taste” of the Journey Guide. It also includes practical action points and follow-up questions for your team to help you get ready, get going, stay with it, and keep growing.Reggie McNeal notes, “The Missional Journey serves as a great guide book for everyone willing to live the missional adventure.”
Ed Stetzer writes, “Whether you’re planting a new church, re-orienting an established church, or guiding a movement, The Missional Journey is not just a book to read–it’s a book to work through and process with your team.”
Bob Roberts adds, “What I love about The Missional Journey is that it’s not just a book, but something that you work through with other people.”
