What is a Missional Community?
Missional Community is the small group/house church/cell group/life group of the Journey of Faith Church. We call it Missional Community because we are the local missionaries called by God to live the sent life of making disciples.
Why do we need a Missional Community?
Lord Jesus Christ requires all of His genuine disciples to live out their Christian calling by 1) ministering to one another (inward) and 2) sharing the Gospel with everyone within our reach (outward). The Missional Community is one way to empower believers to minister (serve) to others.
What does it mean to “minister to one another”?
Minister simply means to serve one another. The ways we can serve one another in Christ will vary and depends on the need, but an example would be to pray for each other.
How often, what day, what time?
The frequency, day and time is determined by each Missional Community, but each groups typically meets every 2 weeks on a Friday at 6:30 PM.
Will the Missional Community be a meaningful gathering worth my time?
Yes, we strive to make the Missional Community a meaningful gathering by focusing on spiritual matters. Although, food will be served, the focus will not be on the food but people.
What happens at a Missional Community gathering?
At a Missional Community, we eat dinner, sing praise songs, talk about spiritual matters , and pray for one another.
Is the Missional Community open to all JoF members and even unchurched people?
The Missional Community welcomes both Christians and non-Christians.
If I brought non-Christian friends to this meeting, will they feel uncomfortable?
The Missional Community strives to build a genuine Christian Community where we love one another and our neighbors. Whether someone will feel comfortable or uncomfortable will depend on the person, but we attempt to do our very best to welcome and befriend everyone.
Is the Missional Community a seeker sensitive gathering?
Yes and No. Yes, the Missional Community is seeker sensitive in that we intentionally seek and welcome non-Christians to experience a loving Christian community. No, in that we do not compromise what happens at a genuine Christian community just make people comfortable.
