When talking with parents of young children about the idea of being in a Missional Community, of joining a small group of believers who work together to declare and demonstrate the gospel, I usually get one of two responses.
Parents either say,
“Sounds great! Where should I drop my kids off? Or will you send a babysitter to my house?”
or, they say,
“That sounds great for other people, but right now I have children, and my primary calling is to disciple them. Maybe once they’re grown up, then I can join a Missional Community.”
