Having recently returned from an inspiring event in Denver, Missional Café, here are a few quotations from various ministry leaders I captured:
"It's easy to gather a crowd; that's not the same as making disciples."
"Go & Seek" works with "Come & See"; Missional and Attractional mode are not mutually exclusive.
A pastor from a Christian Reformed mega-church shared that 80% of their youth who graduate from high school in any given year leave their congregation. They don't see the point.
"I am baptized!" A powerful realization, when you stop to think about it.
"Missional Leader: one with eyes, ears, and a heart, for those who are not yet at the Banquet Table."
