Monday is for Missiology: Musings on the Manifesto

In 2011, I was privileged to help organize what became known as the Missional Manifesto. With the partnership of Alan Hirsch, J.D. Greear, Tim Keller, Eric Mason,Philip Nation, Dan Kimball, Craig Ott, Linda Bergquist, and Brad Andrews, I think we framed a helpful document.

I want to thank those of you who have joined in on this conversation around the missio Dei. I'm convinced this is one of the most important discussions we can be investing our time and energy into in this unique season in the life of the church. That's why I blog "Mondays is for Missiology."

I've been encouraged by the response to the manifesto. Schools have been teaching from the manifesto. Networks have said, "this is how we define 'missional' when we use the term." One denominational leader emailed me and said they are included the document in their resource on how churches can be missional. Finally, another denomination is using it in their national resource to help their churches be on mission. I am encouraged people are finding the manifesto helpful.

So today, I wanted to take a look back at a 10-part series I did here on the blog about the manifesto. For those of you in leadership, it might be helpful to revisit these missional foundations and examine your ministry as you prepare for 2012.
