Missional training #3 – Jeff & Caesar on Missional Communities

Since I’ll be in Joplin next week with Camp Noah, I’ve given you a longer video to watch. This is from Jeff Vanderstelt and Caesar Kalinowski from Soma Communities.  Watch the video below and consider the questions to help you process what you hear.

  1. Apologetics are a systematic defence of doctrine usually concerning the truth and validity and reliability of the Christian story, especially the resurrection.  According to Jeff, What is the strongest apologetic for the Gospel?
  2. What are our four identities as Christians according to Caesar?
  3. What does it mean that “Our being proceeds our doing”?
  4. What’s the danger of seeing Missional communities as primarily a Bible study or support group, activist group, etc?
  5. Why is it important that mission or service is connected to a people?
  6. How are we the church? 
  7. Caesar quotes what a disciple is according to John Piper.  How is that different from what you were taught about being a disciple?
  8. How many people do Jeff and Caesar suggest for each missional community?  Why are those numbers beneficial. 
  9. Why does the Gospel work we’re in cause us to grieve? 

Note:  You can get the Soma School Note’s Here which flesh out some of the ideas that they talk about such as Gospel identities and Rhythms.

For my Core Group, continue reading the Gospel-Centred Life with Chapter 3, A Life of Change
