9780801014079: The Road to Missional: Journey to the Center of the Church (Shapevine)

It has recently become acceptable, and even fashionable, to refer to one's church as "missional. " But many churches misunderstand the concept, thinking of "going missional" as simply being a necessary add-on to church-as-usual. This domestication of what is actually a very bold paradigm shift makes missional nothing more than one more trick to see church growth. With a light hand and a pastoral spirit, Michael Frost points out how church practitioners are not quite there yet. He reestablishes the ground rules, redefines the terms accurately, and insists that the true prophetic essence of "being missional" comes through undiluted. This clear corrective will take ministry leaders from "not missional yet" to well on their way.

It has recently become acceptable, and even fashionable, to refer to one's church as "missional." But many churches misunderstand the concept, thinking of "going missional" as simply being a necessary add-on to church-as-usual. This domestication of what is actually a very bold paradigm shift makes missional nothing more than one more trick to see church growth.

With a light hand and a pastoral spirit, Michael Frost points out how most of us are not quite there yet. He reestablishes the ground rules, redefines the terms accurately, and insists that the true prophetic essence of "being missional" comes through undiluted. This clear corrective will take ministry leaders from "not missional yet" to well on their way.
"A prophetic call to examine all we do in light of the mission of God. I'm thankful to have Frost's provocative voice in the missional conversation."--Ed Stetzer, coauthor of Compelled by Love

"It's all here--divine origins, shifting evangelism, cross, resurrection, and holistic redemption--in accessible form. This is the first book to give someone who says 'What is missional?'"--Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University; author of One.Life

"The Road to Missional practically helps everyone understand their place in God's mission, the pace to which God will ask them to move, and the possibilities of a life oriented away from self. This book is a must for church leaders but is dense with beautiful stories that will give every unpaid saint reasons to live a vigorous life after the King."--Hugh Halter, author of Sacrilege and coauthor of The Tangible Kingdom
Michael Frost is vice principal of Morling College and the founding director of the Tinsley Institute, a mission study center at Morling College in Sydney, Australia. He is the author of Jesus the Fool, Seeing God in the Ordinary, and Exiles, and the coauthor of The Shaping of Things to Come.
