What Does “Missional” Mean? Answer: A Subtle but Significant Shift

It’s been a while since I attempted to answer the question, “What does it mean to be ‘missional’?” When I launched this blog in May 2012, that was the first question I tried to answer.

I had the opportunity to preach on this subject at The Table in East Dallas, Texas, in October 2012, and shortly after I posted the full-length video of that talk (and really the entire worship service).

Recognizing that people do not typically sit and watch 37-minute long YouTube videos, I’ve decided to post a few short clips from that talk, which capture some important aspects of my thinking on missional shift — starting with this clip in which I answer the question (again), “What does it mean to be ‘missional’?”

If this video is helpful to you and you think it would be helpful to others, please share the link broadly and subscribe to the TransFORM Network YouTube channel for more videos.

    Interesting timing on this… one of the core points of discussion for this year’s council retreat (two days ago) was to define a mission statement. Wish I had seen this beforehand to share as an input into that process.
