Scott wrote MissioRelate as a way of prodding small group systems to move towards life-changing, relational experiences that draw people into missional group life.
The word ‘missional’ seems to be abuzz acros the landscape of the American church. It’s ‘hip’ to be ‘missional’ right now. What I love about Scott’s work is that he plainly lays out the foundations of what it takes for small groups to be truly missional, both theologically and practically. This book just might change the way you think about small groups…in a very good way.
Check out this interview I did with Scott (sorry…for some reason, my video froze. I’ll figure out the whole recording thing soon enough!).
Here are the questions Scott answers:
1. You talk a lot about rhythms in your book…why are rhythms so important to group life?
2. You’re pretty critical of current small groups systems. What churches are doing it ‘right’ now?
3. How do you see the typical American mindset influencing church life these days?
5. Give us a couple of practical steps that a small group could take to really draw people in to missional group life.
Scott mentions a few resources in the video. You can see those HERE.
