Six basic principles


23
1
There is no return address
24
The defining aspect of this change of epoch is
that things are no longer in their place we
cannot simply wait for what we are experiencing
to pass under the illusion that things will
return to being how they were before. Pope
Francis.

Jerusalem
26
The eccentric effects
Judea
The centre and the Acts story shift Samaria is
not a return ticket story moves from a focus on
Peter to Paul the Church goes west church is
done differently among Gentiles
27
In working with young people . . . do not try to
call them back to where they were, and do not try
to call them to where you are, as beautiful as
that place might seem to you. You must have the
courage to go with them to a place that neither
you nor they have ever been before.
Christianity Rediscovered An Epistle from the
Masai (1978)

Who is church for?
32
  • Church as a place where
  • certain things take place
  • to
  • a body of people sent on a mission
  • Community gathered by a common calling vocation
  • to be a sent people
  • God centred mission rather than church centred
  • church as missional with calling and sending
    action of
  • God forming its identity


33
  • "The church is not the sender but the one sent.
    Its mission (its "being sent") is not secondary
    to its being the church exists in being sent and
    in building up itself for the sake of its
    mission.
  • David Bosch, Transforming Mission.

The ship is safest when its in the port. But
thats not what ships were made for.

Discipleship rather than attendance
37
We would intend to make disciples and let
converts happen rather than intending to make
converts and let disciples happen. The
Divine Conspiracy, p334.
38
If not part of a mutually discipling community
the culture will disciple you.

What kind of people are we called to be? What
kind of community is capable of raising people
like that?
41

Church is multi level
42
every expression of the church is, in its own
way, another worked example of what the encounter
with Christ looks like in the life of a
particular community.
43

46
Dying to live
I tell you the truth, unless a grain of
wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains
only a single seed. But if it dies, it
produces many seeds. John 12 23-6
47
What might this mean for the structures and shape
of your church?
48
Archegos
49
Archegos
looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfector of
our faith Hebrews 122 in bringing many
children to glory, should make the pioneer of
their salvation perfect through
sufferings. Hebrews 210 and you killed the
pioneer (author) of life, whom God raised from
the dead Acts 315 God exalted him at his right
hand as Pioneer (Leader) and Saviour Acts 531
50
Archegos
one who takes a lead in, or provides the first
occasion of anything.
51
Archegos
  • derived pioneering
  • costly
  • Kingdom innovatory practices

52
Archegos
How was Jesus pioneering in his practice?
53
A pioneer is a person called by God who has the
character and gifting to respond first to the
Holy Spirits initiatives within a particular
context and to create, with others, something
in response to these promptings which opens up
new horizons.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I
cannot change, the courage to change the things
I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Reinhold Niebuhr

Pioneer Starter

58
Danger of one model/image for pioneering
59
This is not solo pioneering leadership
60
Pioneering gifts are widely distributed in the
team and beyond , and the pioneer leader is to
help create a context where these gifts can be
exercised. Mike Moynagh
61
Pioneering teams
one of the great myths of entrepreneurship has
been the notion if the leader as a lone
hero The reality is that successful
entrepreneurs either built teams about them or
were part of a team throughout. Thomas Cooney,
What is an Entrepreneurial Team
62
Imaginative Team

76
There can be no constructive change at all,
even in church, unless there is some form of
dissent. By dissent I mean simply the proposing
of alternatives. and a system that is not
continuously examining alternatives is not
likely to evolve creatively. Gerald Arbuckle,
Refounding the Church
77
People who
reflect, connect and dont know

Disturb us Lord, when we are too well pleased
with ourselves, when our dreams have come
true because we have dreamed too little, when we
arrived safely because we sailed too close to the
shore.
