Missional small communities - stetzer

Ed Stetzer talking about 'Missional Small Communities' (and links to other of Ed's talks). About 35 minutes.

I missed some stuff the first time through, but some of the things I wrote down:
  • "I'm not concerned as much with the container, but with the fact that the church has become contained."
  • "Life-change happens best in small groups/communities."
  • When you have less to maintain you can focus more on mission" (yo-yo)
  • "Sometimes pastors and teachers love to teach more than they love to see people learn."
  • "World Outreach Center"
  • "We want to create learners, not dependents."
  • Connect. Grow. Serve. Go.
