The Missional Communities at Austin Stone were started with a simple idea, “What if we modeled our small groups after how Jesus modeled his small group?”
Through our partnership with RightNow Media, we’re honored to share the story of how Austin Stone is calling their Missional Communities – the small groups inside their church – to engage in opportunities to be equipped and be sent out to make a difference in their local community.
Their teaching pastor, Matt Carter and Director of Missional Communities, Todd Engstrom share how serving on mission together not only impacted those around them but it brought about lasting community in each group.
“When we were simply aiming for community, most of the times we got neither community or mission. When we aimed for mission we got both mission and community.”
We know that serving together, being on mission together is such a powerful way of bringing the body together. Whether it’s getting more volunteers serving every week on Sunday morning or its equipping the Bible Study and Group Leaders in your church to lead their group on mission, we’re here to help.
Our team is working with Churches across the country to launch this to all their group leaders at their fall kickoff. If you would like a free workshop to get you ready to use it give us a call at 214-973-5056.
