Missional Living

5 Ways to Be Missional

Being Missional is not an event or a project that we just add on to our busy schedule. As Christians, being missional is a lifestyle.  We are to be salt and light and make disciples as we go.  We can be missional in everyday ways through our normal routine & activities. Here are a few ideas to live missionally on the go:

  1. Eat with Non-Christians. Make a focused attempt to eat with folks outside of the Christian culture. Use the time to develop deeper relationships & share life with others.
  2. Get outside. Go on a walk or hang out in a park. Be deliberate in your walk. Get to know people & strike up conversations. Take the dog or the kids & engage people intentionally. Take interest in your neighbors. Ask questions. Pray as you go.
  3. Be a Regular. Go to the same places for gas, groceries, haircuts, eating out, and coffee. Get to know the staff on a personal level.
  4. Hobby with Non-Christians. Pick a hobby that you can share and enjoy with others. Try city league sports, local rowing, or cycling teams. Or you can engage with others by teaching a hobby.  Teach tennis lessons, gardening, guitar, knitting, or photography. Be prayerful. Be intentional.
  5. Participate in Community Events.  Go to local festivals, concerts, or fundraisers. Participate missionally. Strike up spiritual conversations. Pray for the city. Love the city. Participate with the community.
