Last weekend, myself, Logan, and Gibby headed off to the mountains for our first ever Basileia Church staff retreat. We had a blast, spent much needed time in strategy planning and prayer, and discussed a book by Darrin Patrick and Matt Carter entitled For the City. The book describes what it looks like for a church to so impact a local culture that the community notices and loves the church, even if they don’t agree with everything the church stands for. It’s a rather simple book with a lot of personal stories and some basic, but very important, principles about missional living. If you’re wanting to figure out what “missional” is all about, this is a very basic introduction that excites and encourages as it teaches.
