Why the Missional Movement Will Fail | A Response to Mike Breen

Mike Breen wrote an article at The Verge Network titled Why the Missional Movement Will Fail. His answer boiled down to one word: discipleship. I couldn’t agree with him more.

Breen defines discipleship like this:

One great writer on discipleship put it this way: Discipleship is the process of becoming who Jesus would be if he were you. read more

Missio Trinitatis | The Family Mission | Great Idea from Mike Breen

Twitter has proven to be a helpful tool for research. This morning proved that again. I was trolling through my Twitter feed and came across a tweet from Mike Breen over at 3DM. The title caught my eye, “Why the Missional Conversation Must Change.”

His article proposes that we stop talking about missio Dei (the mission of God) and start talking about missio Trinitatis (the mission of the Trinity). Music to my ears.
