The Characteristics of a Missional Church


Author Tim Keller speaks of how people in a missional church inhabit the world, understanding the problems and lives of ordinary people. This type of church and Christian is not expected by non-Christians, who view Christians as being obsessed with things unrelated to their lives.

What are the larger problems in the world that both Christians and non-Christians see as problems? How can the church help with these issues?

According to the latest CNN poll the top concerns of Americans are:

Health care

Education

Terrorism

Energy policy

Other (vol.)

Unsure

It would seem that we Christians should have some concerns are views from a Christian perspective as well

Thanks, dad, for sharing this poll. These are definitely topics that are on people's minds.

So how can the church engage people in these topics and provide Christian light, guidance, and help in these areas?
