Missional Communities

Here's a video introduction to what a Missional Community is by Jeff Vanderstelt who is part of the Soma Family of Churches servant leadership team. 

Filmed by the video team at The Austin Stone Community Church (http://austinstone.org/)

A Missional Community consists of a committed core of believers (FAMILY) who live out the mission of God together (MISSIONARIES) in a specific area and to a particular people group by demonstrating the gospel in tangible forms (SERVANTS) and declaring the gospel to others — both those who believe it and those who are being exposed to it.

To clarify, a Missional Community is NOT primarily a small group, Bible study, support group, social activist group, or weekly meeting. Our hope is that every person who is committed to the Soma family and mission will be fully involved in a Missional Community and eventually the Missional Communities in a region will multiply and together form a new local church.
