Cultivating Missional Movements Implementation Guide

“There­fore go and make dis­ci­ples of all nations, bap­tizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey every­thing I have com­manded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” — Matthew 28:19–20

That’s what it means to be mis­sional– to be about the mis­sion of Jesus, which is making dis­ci­ples. As we make dis­ci­ples, those dis­ci­ples nat­u­rally form com­mu­ni­ties, and we call those com­mu­ni­ties churches. As the gospel spread throughout the region, churches sprang up in other areas, mul­ti­plying as more dis­ci­ples were made.

If starting and sus­taining a mul­ti­plying move­ment of dis­ci­ples and churches– under the guid­ance and direc­tion of the Holy Spirit– is your calling, this imple­men­ta­tion guide was designed with you in mind. Here we build on The Mis­sional Journey book, allowing you to take the con­cepts fur­ther as you build your system using the basic frame­work laid out in the book: get ready, get going, stay with it, keep growing. How­ever, it’s not strictly linear: you can pick and choose your issues, pri­or­i­tizing what you need in order to gain momentum.

You can work through this guide with a cohort of influ­encers and prac­ti­tioners. We pro­vide descrip­tions of each of the key areas needed to start and sus­tain a mul­ti­plying move­ment– along with reflec­tion ques­tions that help you deter­mine your action steps.
