- This video explains, in the simplest way I’ve seen to date, exactly what is meant by the concept of the “missional” church. Very helpful.
- Tim Keller is smarter than I could ever hope to be, and he’s written a brief essay (originally published 6/01) that explains the need for a “missional” church, the elements of a “missional” church, and what the “missional” church looks like in action. I found the section on the importance of theologically training lay people to be particularly helpful.

- Finally, this blog post by Scott Thomas, director of the Acts29 Network, provides a good overview of missional misunderstandings as well as several proposed definitions. Great summary of current missional thought.
