What Missional Help do you Need?

As a person

as a church

what help do you need?

As we move into 2007 it's the desire of my wife and volunteers at our ministry to help provide you with the resources, support and tools you need to become more missional in 2007.

To do that we need your help.

What can we do to help you? What do you need?

Let us know so we know how to a lot our resources and time in 2007. Help us help you!

Well for me, this is two-fold. I need help in both areas - personal and as a church. You've shared some good examples of how we can reach some of those people in our community. My problem is that I work about 25 miles from my community and often work so much that I'm not really involved in my community.

What is your advice to someone who feels a shortage of time to be involved in a missional way in their home-town and surrounding area? Get involved in community events? Volunteer on weekends? Are their opportunities that work with toddlers? (Because my whole family really needs to be involved rather than Daddy or Mommy off doing something while someone else watches the children)

For the church - what can we do to help people own the idea that we are called to be in the world even though we're not supposed to be like/of the world? I know that people won't really do anything unless the idea is "their own" so that is the first step. (I'm speaking as someone who's not in an official leadership position at the church so I don't really have a lot of say in church policy overall.) I'd love to get something small going that people could get on board with easily and start/stop as they were led.

I guess I'm looking for ideas, resources, and encouragement for me and for the body. I really appreciate your blog and I feel that God is calling me to reach out, but I'm unclear on the "how" "who", and "what" right now. i.e. Who do I start reaching out to? How do I reach out to them with my gifts/skills/resources? What is the most effective way to do this?

In Him,
