Over the past few months I’ve become really intrigued by the concept of missional communities. One of the guys I’ve found that helps me better understand the missional community idea is Mike Breen. He has been forming and leading missional communities for quite a while and his blog has some really good information.
Another guy I’ve just discovered is Alex Absalom. I found him through Mike Breen’s blog. Alex has been involved in some of Mike’s work, particularly in England.
Mike and Alex have written a new book together that I’ve just got in this weekend. The book is Launching Missional Communities: A Field Guide. I’m looking forward to reading it this week and learning more about the possibility of missional communities tied in with our church. The book is available from 3DM Ministries, a resourcing and coaching ministry that I believe both Mike and Alex are involved in.
I’m always looking for new resources to better understand and, possibly in the future, launch missional communities. Have you found some good resources on the subject? Do you know people or churches that are actively involved in missional communities? Where would you steer me next?
