31 Days of Missional Living

It's been a year since this blog went public. Last year I began it by writing 31 Days of Intentional Living. Along that same vein I will write about living missionally for the next 31 days. "Missional" has become a buzz word in most Christian circles.  So much so that it's meaning has become muddied and obscure. For the sake of our time here I'll use missional to mean living "sent" or as a missionary within your current context.

My hope is to give you some easy and practical tips for living missionally. I'll give you some specific things to apply to your life and I'll even challenge myself from time to time. My hope is that you'll see fulfilling the Great Commission where you live is pretty simple and often only requires you to maximize what you're already doing. This doesn't mean it won't be challenging or require sacrifice. But contrary to what you may believe, missional living isn't rocket science.

If you're going to join me for 31 Days of Missional living please let me know in the comments below so we can encourage each other along the way. It's going to be a great month and I pray God will work through you to draw others to himself over the next 31 days.

  1. Great topic - I will be following along!

    1. I'm so happy to have you and can't wait to hear how God works in your life this month.

  2. Hi, I'll be following along this month, too!

  3. If men are allowed, me 3. Interesting, I told someone recently that "church planting isn't rocket science." It wasn't received well but I think I meant the same thing you are saying: simple, focused, maximized.

    1. Yes, of course men are allowed. And I agree, church planting isn't rocket science. Sometime we make the Gospel much more complicated than it has to be.

  4. Glad to have found you through Nester’s link up. I’m looking forward to what you have to share. I am blogging about “I Wear Pink”. Please stop by.

    1. Donna, thanks for stopping by. Please post a link to your blog.

  5. I like the title of your blog. I actually don't plant churches, but I do think I plant seeds. My husband and I cruise in a sailboat, and when we are not able to visit a church on Sunday, we have church wherever we are and make an effort to invite others to join us. We see people for a moment, and then we all go our separate ways. Still, I think that shared worship changes people. I'm looking forward to your posts.

    1. Katherine, I'm so excited to hear your story. It sounds like you and your husband are very missional by planting seeds of the Gospel wherever you go. Awesome!
