Missional Communities Series

Missional Communities series | Final Post

by Mike Breen


Well folks, this is our last post in our long-running Missional Communities series. And what better way to end it than by ending without new content; rather, an easy reference list of each of the past posts. Hope you find this helpful in the months and years to come.

Once again, if you’re really wanting to dive into Missional Communities, I can’t recommend our book long or loud enough, Launching Missional Communities: A Field Guide.

Lastly, if you’re unfamiliar with Missional Communities, I suggest a quick detour to this Wikipedia article, it’ll help familiarize you with the ideas, history, terms, theology and basics on practice.

Mike Breen has been an innovator in leading missional churches throughout Europe and the United States for more than 25 years. In his time at St Thomas Sheffield in the UK, he created and pioneered Missional Communities, mid-sized groups of 20-50 people on mission together. The result, less than 6 years later, was the largest church in England, and ultimately, one of the largest and now fastest growing churches in Europe. In 2006 Mike was approached by Leadership Network to lead an initiative into church planting. Through this partnership, more than 725 churches were planted in Europe in just three years. Today, Mike lives in South Carolina, leading 3DM, a movement/organization that is helping hundreds of established churches and church planters move into this discipling and missional way of being the church.
