It is important to say that do I believe missions are important. Missions are integral to the way of Jesus. Our God is a God of mission, and we are a people called be about the same thing. I think we get confused, however, about what that term, missions, actually means. We view, express and practice “missions” as if it is an external activity, some sort of duty to be fulfilled. We see it, as a noun instead of what I will suggest that it is, an adjective. It seems to me that “missions” are not a task to be completed so much as a way of being. This way of being could be described as “missional” and it is the term I prefer.
