As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

Christians everywhere are asking big questions about what it means to follow Jesus, how their faith should affect everyday life, and how church should figure into their response to poverty and other social justice issues. Into the fray enters “missional community.” No doubt about it: These days, missional community is a buzzword.
Some are curious about the missional church; others are inspired, and some are simply overwhelmed. Although buzzwords such as “missional community” can be helpful or fun to talk about, many Christians simply don’t know where to begin.
A missional community is a gospel community that lives out the mission of God together in a specific area and to a particular people group by demonstrating the gospel in tangible forms and declaring the gospel to others—both those who believe it and those who are being exposed to it.
Simply put, missional communities (MCs) are families of missionary servants who make disciples who make disciples: a community of everyday citizens who are devoted to Jesus, to one another, to their neighbors and city.
