Resources 

We believe that every expression of the church can benefit from understanding itself as a missional community. When we read the gospels, the kind of life that Jesus invites us to experience is one that we would call missional community. 

 

That’s why we have created a set of resources that help Christians in any context to explore the practices of a missional community. 

 

These resources will help you to deepen your understanding of missional community as a core expression of how we live out our faith in Jesus today in the 21st Century.
