Fast Forwarding Your Church’s Community Engagement
By Warren Bird and Reggie McNeal published on May 10, 2011
More churches are pioneering a shift toward community service. Not only are they deploying their own members; they are engaging people outside the church to work in the community. Missional Churches are strategically working together with other churches and non-church organizations to transform their cities and communities. Reggie McNeal, Leadership Network’s missional leadership specialist, examines the trends and other developments in these missional churches.
In this podcast, Warren Bird interviews Reggie McNeal about missional churches. In their discussion, they talk about how more American’s are spiritually involved outside the church and how they are participating in more works of service. Topics include the different types of community service and how others outside the church become involved. Questions such as, “What does the new scorecard look like?” are discussed. Finally, they examine the rise in true collaboration across multiple domains in a community.
