"While the theory and theology of missional church are important, this book is about practice-a practical guide to MCs written by some of the people who were there at the beginning of their inception and know them inside out. This book, while helpfully summarizing all the theory on Missional Communities, is fundamentally about how to make them work in your church community."--From back cover

"This book recounts a journey of discovery in an area where we thought we knew exactly how the church worked - the congregation. It tells the story and explores the principles that can radically reconfigure the mid-sized expression of church to recover biblical congregation as extended family and community in mission. It also charts a course for transitional church, from inherited models to thoroughgoing missional communities that can creatively express the transforming life of Jesus in as many different forms as the diverse cultures and contexts of our plural society"--Page 4 of cover.

Public gatherings are vital for movement, but too often in our approach to planting churches, we haven't paid enough attention to the difficult grassroots work of movement: discipleship, community formation, and mission. This book will help you start missional-incarnational communities in a way that reflects the viral movement of the early New Testament church. JR Woodward (author of Creating a Missional Culture) and Dan White Jr. (author of Subterranean) have trained church planters all over North America to create movemental churches that are rooted in the neighborhood, based on eight necessary competencies: Movement Intelligence Polycentric Leadership Being Disciples Making Disciples Missional Theology Ecclesial Architecture Community Formation Incarnational Practices The book features an interactive format with tools, exercises, and reflection questions and activities. It's ideal for church planting teams or discipleship groups to use together. It's not enough to understand why the church needs more missional and incarnational congregations.The Church as Movement will also show you how to make disciples that make disciples. This is the engine that drives the church as movement, so that everyday Christians can be present in the world to join God's mission in the way of Jesus.

Mainline Christianity in the West is dying. Addiction to hierarchical and bureaucratic power is killing it. A management-god and a mission-god have usurped the Way of Christ. In the midst of decline the missional movement is attempting to reboot the church. Its goal is to remake a New Christian West through mission, leadership, mapping, and planning. Yet it is trapped in the language and methods of modernity. Its final solution is a polarizing vision of cultural domination by one social group, the Christians. The Way of Life and Truth has been forgotten. Christ is not a conquering King, a written Word, or an absolute Idea, but a divine Human Being. Social wholeness can only be realized through a rediscovery of Conversation, Reconciliation, and Empowerment. These reflect Christ's practices of eternal dialogue and reciprocal giving in small communities. Through this mutual Way of Life people of all faiths (and none) can discover deep within themselves Our Un/Known G-d. A gentle voice is whispering in the heart of all humanity, I am . . . the Way.

Missional communities are sending agencies into our neighborhoods, cities, and nations. To be clear, it is not that communities grow in numbers and need to split, or that communities have a pyramid growth chart. Multiplication is a function of a gospel work and empowerment of the Spirit. Leaders and communities are sent out of existing gospel communities because the gospel is advancing and sending us into maturity. Not only that, but multiplication is communal. It is done as a community, with leaders and coaches. How do you equip leaders? How do you send them well? How do you support and coach leaders once they've gone? In Multiply Together, Brad Watson offers the leaders of leaders and the overseers of communities the theological vision, practical wisdom, and stories of how to coach and support a movement of gospel-centered communities on mission. Multiply Together is a coaching a resource for those creating multiplying discipleship movements.
