Missional Renewal and Congregational Change: Listening, Piloting and Celebrating

Below is an article I was privileged to write for Wineskins Magazine, a great publication for those associated with the Restoration Movement.

Missional renewal and congregational change is something I deeply believe in. My hope is that this little story of listening, piloting and celebrating will encourage others to take a similar posture. By no means is the only shift a community of faith must make to open herself up to renewal, but I do believe it is a necessary one.

Please share your responses on Wineskins’ comments thread. If you are experiencing renewal in your local congregation, please share how God is moving. Perhaps it will open the eyes of the rest of us to see what God is doing in our context. Thanks for reading.
