Discover a whole new way of following Jesus.

It has recently become acceptable, and even fashionable, to refer to one's church as "missional." But many churches misunderstand the concept, thinking of  "going missional" as simply being a necessary add-on to church-as-usual. This domestication of what is actually a very bold paradigm shift makes missional nothing more than one more trick to see church growth.

With a light hand and a pastoral spirit, Michael Frost points out how most of us are not quite there yet. He reestablishes the ground rules, redefines the terms accurately, and insists that the true prophetic essence of "being missional" comes through undiluted. This clear corrective will take ministry leaders from "not missional yet" to well on their way.

ENDORSEMENTS:

It's all here - divine origins, shifting evangelism, cross, resurrection, and holistic redemption - in accessible form. This is the first book to give someone who says "what is missional?" - Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University; author of One.Life

The Road to Missional  practically helps everyone understand their place in God's mission, the pace to which God will ask them to move, and the possibilities of a life oriented away from self. This book is a must for church leaders but is dense with beautiful stories that will give every unpaid saint reasons to live a vigorous life after the King.
- Hugh Halter, author of Sacrilege and coauthor of The Tangible Kingdom

"Mike Frost points out again why choosing missional as a destination is such a scenic route. In The Road to Missional he acts as experienced tour guide to help us know both what to look for and what we are seeing on this journey. Every church leader on the missional path will want to have this volume handy."--Reggie McNeal, missional leadership specialist, The Leadership Network

Good foundation
I’ve had the opportunity to hear Michael Frost in person. He is a dynamic personality that inspires you to be bold for the Gospel. I still recall some of the amazing stories that helped me understand why God is calling us to His mission. His newest is Road to Missional: Journey to the Centre of the Church.

So do we really need another “missional” book? Maybe that’s the reason Frost wrote the book – because the term has become a catch-all term for “improved” evangelism or “serving into the community”. I agree with other reviewers of this book – that what Frost has provided – is give the Church a true understanding of missional that speaks to our heart and mind. The book will challenge you, correct you, and inspire you (some great illustrations and stories!). Definitely the first book to give to someone wanting to know – “what is missional?”.
