Claiming New Territory

Link to a reflection by my friend Mike Breen (senior guardian of The Order of Mission) on missional communities as a strategy for claiming new territory. Particularly worth further reflection and discussion is the observation that as missional community leaders, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers (Ephesians 4) will each lead in a different way; and that those who are called to be heads – vision-carriers – of ‘households’ (Greek ‘oikos,’ the primary pattern of the New Testament church) would do well to discover who God has gifted us to be, and the consequence for the nature of the ‘household’ that gathers around us.
