Missional Communities series | Final Post

May 18, 2011

Well folks, this is our last post in our long-running Missional Communities series. And what better way to end it than by ending without new content; rather, an easy reference list of each of the past posts. Hope you find this helpful in the months and years to come.

Once again, if you’re really wanting to dive into Missional Communities, I can’t recommend our book long or loud enough,Launching Missional Communities: A Field Guide.

Lastly, if you’re unfamiliar with Missional Communities, I suggest a quick detour to this Wikipedia article, it’ll help familiarize you with the ideas, history, terms, theology and basics on practice.

    Dear Friends,

    Our Missional Community kicks off this Saturday, May 21st here in the Phoenix Area. We are part of Paul Sorenson’s Hope Church and we are excited to see what God has in store for us. We covet your prayers and ask that the Holy Spirit have His way with us. I would highlight and underscore Mike’s recommendation regarding the Field Guide.

    In His Service,

    Rich & Jan Schleier

    Kindle version?

      Hoping to. Amazon does some interesting things with price-setting for publishes (i.e. gauging) and it may not be economically feasible. We’re certainly hoping it will be.
