Cultivating the Missional Church
Randolph C. Ferebee
Number of pages: 128
Written from a post-Christendom and missional worldview, this book was born of a singular question asked in hundreds of ways: “What do we do to be faithful in this changed and changing reality?” Whether shaped by anxiety, a foretaste of coming changes, excitement, or energy at the prospects of witness and service the future holds, the question remains the same and the answers elusive.
Part one addresses the ministry of leadership under categories of governance, modeling, collaboration, champion, catalyst, mission, covenant, disciple, change and the talents and gifts of leaders. Part two offers further explication of the functions, including books recommended for in-depth study, application ideas, vestry agendas, and further exploration of themes.
