Jesus told his disciples to go into ALL the world and Make Disciples. A Missional Church is on a “mission” to make that happen in the local church. The church of the 1950s, 60s 70s and 80s is long gone and the church has been slow to sense the cultural and societal shift. The church of the 21st century, in order to survive and grow, must discern its community and how it can best “serve” its citizens. “No church votes to die, it just votes not to live,” (Thom Rainer from his book, “Autopsy of a Deceased Church“).
