Some books on the missional church

Craig Van Gelder. The Ministry of the Missional Church: A Community Led by the Spirit (Baker, 2007)
Craig Van Gelder, editor. The Missional Church and Leadership Formation: Helping Congregations Develop Leadership Capacity (Eerdmans, 2009)

I’ve recently finished reading two books on the missional church.   These two books have been my foundational readings about the missional church.

  1. Craig Van Gelder. The Ministry of the Missional Church: A Community Led by the Spirit (Baker, 2007).
  2. Craig Van Gelder, editor. The Missional Church and Leadership Formation: Helping Congregations Develop Leadership Capacity (Eerdmans, 2009).

I am now re-reading the foundational book: Missional Church: A Vision for the Sending of the Church in North America (Eerdmans, 1998), edited by Darrell Guder, who is another key author.

Another important author in the mission church conversation is Alan Roxburgh.

And if you’re interested, here’s a good list of books on the missional church.

I will give my personal opinion on the missional church movement in a post coming up.
