Growing Worshiping Disciples on Mission for Christ

So You Think You’re a Missional Genius: A Pop Quiz!

1 Comment

Question-MarkI’ve been posting on this blog for over a year now.  Let’s see what YOU have learned?

1. Define attractional worship in your own words. Define missional worship in your own words. What are the differences in the results of these two philosophies of worship?  (See the two videos “Missional Church… Simple” and “Missional Community… Simple” in the right column under MISSIONAL RESOURCES.)

2. What are the five elements of the “Five Fingered Approach to Handing Someone the Gospel”?  Go here: https://goingfullcircleblog.wordpress.com/2015/07/18/why-i-started-the-m3-musicarts-mission-movement

3. How can your worship team put in action the five-fingered-approach on mission in your community? Go here: https://goingfullcircleblog.wordpress.com/2015/07/25/a-missional-menu-for-worship-leaders

4. Where is your church on the spectrum between attractional worship and attractive missional worship? How can worship in your church go full circle and grow worshiping disciples on mission?  (Leave a comment below…. I’d like to hear from you!)

5. How can the five-fingered-approach-to-handing-someone-the-gospel enable you to join God’s mission to redeem the world? List the days of the week for the next ten days; then list beside each day of the week how you personally can put this methodology into practice each day and beyond.

Deepest thanks to YOU who read this blog and give me such great feedback. I pray that it is speaking to your heart and mind weekly and translating into a missionary lifestyle in your own life!  Keep up the good work and keep in touch. Next week’s blog will start a series of very practical training about how to grow disciples and lead them on mission to your community. I’ll see you here next week!  — Mark Powers

  1. Am I any sort of genius?! LOL- NOT!!! 😀 Alas (and in “mine own words”) – 1. “Attractional Worship” = Obedience (to Jesus- and this is to occur 24/7). 2. “The 5-fingered Approach” = GO, PREACH, TEACH, KNOW, REPEAT (see Matthew 28:19-20)…. 3. Greet in peace, meet all possible needs, feed the bread- salt and light of the Imperishable Seed, and when necessary, brush the dust off (our) me feet. 4. Growth= (A. the fear of the Lord is Wisdom, B. to turn away from evil is understanding.) “He has shown you, o man, what is good and what does the Lord require of you, but to love justice, seek mercy and walk humbly with your God.” 5. Mission Preparedness= Prayer- constant communication with God the Father, in Power of His Holy Spirit by the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. “….but seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and His Righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” …Holy Father God, may I be ever diligent and obedient to Your glorious mission to which I was called upon the moment of redemption- in Your beautiful name I pray without ceasing, dearest Lord Jesus….
