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.
- 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?
- What are our four identities as Christians according to Caesar?
- What does it mean that “Our being proceeds our doing”?
- What’s the danger of seeing Missional communities as primarily a Bible study or support group, activist group, etc?
- Why is it important that mission or service is connected to a people?
- How are we the church?
- Caesar quotes what a disciple is according to John Piper. How is that different from what you were taught about being a disciple?
- How many people do Jeff and Caesar suggest for each missional community? Why are those numbers beneficial.
- 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.
