Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV

What Is Becoming Missional? Go To the Next WELS Church and Change Conference with Baptist Stetzer, Find Out How To Multiply Your BMs

Save yourself $100 and memorize this chart. Sleepy, becoming very sleepy. Close your eyes. Imagine yourself in a monster, big, huge church. Big sound system. Laser lights. Pit band. Big mansion.

As one reader noticed - learn how to spell discipleship! "Hey Bruce, Paul, Ron, Larry - they spell worse than we do in WELS."

Ed Stetzer, far right, shows that travel is broadening.

NorthWest: What is the "Missional Movement"? Is it just Church Growth on Meth?

Answer: The Church Growth Movement keeps changing its name, but not its doctrine. Rick Warren at Saddlesore Community uses the term Purpose-Driven, but it is Church Growth with another label.

Becoming Missional is another label for the same thing. Baptist Stetzer is missional, but lacks a Fuller Seminary degree. Fuller is full of Becoming Missional themes today. CG on meth is a good description.

The BMs seem to be more anti-institutional. Stetzer blogged against Rome, not for doctrinal reasons, but because it represented the bricks and mortar, church hierarchy model.

Here are some links for those who are not already completely bored by this topic:
