Missional Communities (MCs for short) are central to the mission of The Brook to live intentionally to bring God’s Kingdom everywhere we go. Missional Communities also serve as the primary place to know others and to be known at
The Brook. So what exactly is an MC?
A MISSIONAL COMMUNITY IS A FAMILY OF SERVANT MISSIONARIES
SENT TO MAKE DISCIPLES THAT MAKE DISCIPLES IN EVERYDAY LIFE.
In order to accomplish the mission of making disciples, Missional Communities create an environment where life-on-life, life-in-community, and life-on-mission can occur.
Life-on-Life. Being together in the everyday allows for visibility and accessibility. We see each other’s lives in the everyday stuff so that people know what it looks like to follow Jesus in all of life. With familiarity and accountability, we are able to authentically assess and encourage growth in discipleship.
Life-in-Community. Walking in Gospel-centered community will lead to disciples looking more like Jesus as he works through the diverse people and gifts in his body. Community is also the context in which we care for each other as a good family and live out the one-another passages of Scripture (e.g. bear one another’s burdens, pray for one another, submit to one another, etc.)
Life-on-Mission. In order to lead people to see all of life as worship and discipleship, we must equip disciples to engage the everyday with Gospel intentionality–doing what they would normally do differently in light of what God has done for us in Jesus Christ.
