Episode 20: Missional Living, Models, and Discipleship

Learn how to better integrate mission into the everyday rhythms of your church.

In Episode 20 of the New Churches Q&A Podcast, you’ll learn about different models for missional living and discipleship. Here is Samuel Cutshall’s question, who is in the early stages of planting a missional church.

How do you disciple adults to live on mission who believe they are called to live on mission, but aren’t willing to open their lives to others? 

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The conviction, culture, and constructs paradigm
  • The 8 attributes of a Healthy Disciple
  • Different frameworks for missional living
