Get Fed: Missional Renaissance

September 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 11, 2020

(Wednesdays, September 23 – November 11, 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.)

Join Pastor Bart as we discuss and learn about Missional Renaissance, a way of reframing what it means to be a missional church. Using Reggie McNeal’s classic book Missional Renaissance as our guide, McNeal identifies in this study three major shifts that must take place in the Church if it is to live into its God-given potential. As Reggie puts it “The missional renaissance is changing the way the people of God think about God and the world, about what God is up to in the world and what part the people of God play in it.” He notes that there are three cultural phenomena that are fueling this renaissance:

  • The emergence of the altruism economy: people’s determination not only to share their wealth but to make a difference with it
  • The search for personal growth: the unprecedented pursuit of personal development…a pervasive sense of needing to grow, to learn, to adapt, and to change that has become part of the psyche of our culture
  • The hunger for spiritual vitality: a spirituality robust enough to engage people where they live, work, and play

This study will include a wide-ranging discussion about what means for us to call ourselves a Missional Church and how might we be in a time of reframing and reforming in a Missional Renaissance.

[Participants should purchase Reggie McNeal’s book Missional Renaissance before Get Fed begins. Purchasing options are available through Amazon.com.]
