Michael Frost on “Missional”

Mike Frost invite

My friends over at Forge Canada are hosting Michael Frost in the greater Vancouver area this afternoon and I am happy to be attending two of the sessions.

He is one of the more influential missional thinkers and practitioners out there.  Below is a video snagged from youtube wherein he describes and defines “missional.”  It is important to have a healthy understanding of a word that has hit buzz word status.  His voice is, and will continue to be important for this missional conversation and subsequent praxis.

Does your church use missional language?  What is a helpful definition of ‘missional church’ for you?

    sorry, dude… I basically just STOLE your blog article… dude, it’s like nailing jello to a wall to get folks to stop “buzzing” about “missional” and actually start thinking about what it really means…

    Mike comes from Sydney, and I have heard him speak many times, and have always learned so much. I’m glad you’re getting a turn. His book (with Alan Hirsch), “The shape of things to come” is still (I think) the best there is on the subject. I hope it all went well.
