How does a local church move toward being the church Jesus has called us to be? In the latest addition to Exponential’s Signature Series, Missional Moves: 15 Tectonic Shifts That Transform Churches, Communities and the World (Zondervan), authors Rob Wegner and Jack Magruder—both on staff at Granger Community Church—share what they’ve learned on Granger’s 10-year journey toward apostolic movement.
The church was never designed to be a fortress for the righteous, but a flood of revolutionaries, bringing the Good News of the Kingdom to broken lives and broken communities. Today, millions of Christians are awakening to the holism of the gospel call, expanding their understanding of mission beyond just touching individual lives to impacting and transforming entire communities with the message of God’s grace. If this calling toward movement and transformation is to be realized, it will require some earth-shaking shifts—’Missional Moves’—that fundamentally alter our understanding of the church and how its mission is lived out. This book provides a plan of action for your church that will empower you to unleash each member on a mission, both locally and globally. Missional Moves describes 15 tectonic shifts that unleash missional energy and have the power within them to transform churches, communities and the world.
Missional Moves (the website)
Rather than leave leftover content that didn’t make it into their new book, Missional Moves: 15 Tectonic Shifts That Transform Churches, Communities and the World (Exponential, Zondervan) on the cutting room floor, authors Rob Wegner and Jack Magruder have assembled more than 30 free resources on the book’s website Missionalmoves.com. Throughout the book, the authors reference the various resources they’ve included on the site. In some places readers are alerted to video testimonies as they find the numerous stories of transformed people included in the book.
“Our whole strategy with this book is to be as open-sourced as possible,” says Wegner, Pastor of Life Mission for Granger Community Church.
