Navigating the new waters

What does missional leadership look

like for these new times?

slide4

Sometimes things change and they are

never the same again. This looks like

one of those times. Life moves on. And so

should we…….

slide6

“ this majority (66%) presents a major

challenge to churches. Most of them are

unreceptive and closed

to attending church; churchgoing is

simply not on their agenda.”

slide8

‘The reality is that mainstream culture no longer brings people to the church door. We can no longer

assume that we can automatically

reproduce ourselves, because the pool of people who regard church as

relevant or important is decreasing

with every generation’

Mission shaped church report p11

slide10

A missional

re-engagement

with society

slide11

“ we understood mission one

way and organised life to

accomplish it. We have

awakened to find out the

mission moved on us. To

keep focusing on mission, we

have to turn the furniture

around and face a different

direction. We may even have

to move into another room.”

Loren Mead.

A re-imagination

of what church is

(and could become)

…do not try to call them back to where they were, and do not try to call them to where you are, beautiful as that place may seem to you. You must have the courage to go with them to a place that neither you nor they have been before.

Vincent Donovan

In our missionary

situation we

  • Discontinuous change is the norm
  • Congregations still matter
  • Leaders need new capacities & frameworks
  • A church is a unique organisation
