This fourth volume in the "Living Church" series responds to the needs expressed by today's church leaders for community focused ministry. Taking the principles of missional church theorists, ministry practitioner Glynis LaBarre engages local congregations in the Missional Church Learning Experience (MCLE), a model she developed and tested with hundreds of small to mid-sized churches. This "learn by doing" process guides pastors and lay leaders through practical steps, leading to partnerships with their community, addressing local problems.
