More Than Mercy Ministry – video in which Jeff Vanderstelt defines “missional”

In case you missed it, he said “missional” means “God’s church is so saturated in the gospel and the mission of Jesus that they see themselves as the sent ones of Jesus in all of life to make disciples who make disciples so that the earth gets saturated with people who love Jesus, and God is glorified in all things.”

Josh Reeves says that missional just means “that we live every day as missionaries”.

A concern is that many people talk about “missional church” but don’t seem to know what they are trying to achieve. It can mean simply a desire to engage with the wider society but may lack any understanding of making disciples of Jesus.
