In 2012 Reggie McNeal spoke at our FX National Gathering.
Reggie McNeal gives us a challenge to change our language by talking more about “being” the Church, and to change our scorecards and thus our reasons for celebration. Thinking about the Church as a “who” and not a “what” aims our energies toward “being the Church better” and not “doing church better.” By honoring those who live out the Gospel as missionaries in their own communities, we can see what we’re doing on a cultural scale instead of one that is based on filling pews and funding budgets.
Perhaps people are the mission.
You can watch the rest here.
