David Fitch has a great post on his blog about the expectation folks should not have of a missional church. here his intro check
Having planted a missional church from 10 people, and having gone through much pain and joy, I have wondered what if you could warn people up front what this all would mean for their lives and expectations before they started gathering together? What expectations would you warn those first gathering people against? And if you did deliver such a warning list , would there be anyone left to gather.
As a missional church planter I really appreciate his thoughts on this. They are both affirmation and challenge. They hold a kingdom view of church planting and the missional church out before me.
