Product Description

Three critical shifts are chronicled as the indications of a renaissance in thinking and praxis in missional church leadership: from internally-focused to externally-focused dynamic, from program development to people development, and from churchcentric leadership to community-engaged leadership. Filled with discussion and illustrations about what it means to truly become a missional congregation.

Publisher's Description

Reggie McNeal's bestseller The Present Future is the definitive work on the "missional movement," i.e., the widespread movement among Protestant churches to be less inwardly focused and more oriented toward the culture and community around them. In that book he asked the tough questions that churches needed to entertain to begin to think about who they are and what they are doing; in Missional Renaissance, he shows them the three significant shifts in their thinking and behavior that they need to make that will allow leaders to chart a course toward being missional: (1) from an internal to an external focus, ending the church as exclusive social club model; (2) from running programs and ministries to developing people as its core activity; and (3) from professional leadership to leadership that is shared by everyone in the community. With in-depth discussions of the "what" and the "how" of transitioning to being a missional church, readers will be equipped to move into what McNeal sees as the most viable future for Christianity. For all those thousands of churches who are asking about what to do next after reading The Present Future, Missional Renaissance will provide the answer.

    This book single handily has changed my ministry as a church pastor. It is literally changing the game. I have used it effectively in two churches now to move us into God's preferred future. My whole team has read it and it gets people asking the right questions. The book has been especially effective in helping my smaller congregations become vital inside and influential outside the walls.

    This book is an excellent treatment of the need for churches to become outward-focused and involved in their communities. It addresses the tendency to focus on only the events that are occurring within the four walls of the church building. I recommend it to all church leaders to re-focus in a Biblical, missional direction.
