Moving from Consumers to Missionaries
“So, what’s in it for me?”
Self-interest guides our buying and selling. When it comes to buying shoes or haggling over a car, “So, what’s in it for me?” helps evaluate possible purchases. But is this a good question when it comes to church participation? In North America, congregations often function as a provider of religious goods and services. “Church” has become a consumable good – a place we go to receive something – rather than a sent and sending community, a missionary people.
What do we do with a “So, what’s in it for me?” church?
Consumed is a two-month journey for church leaders who want to think about and experiment with post-consumer church practices. The journey is built around two teaching days and two half-days for reflection and conversation.
