The center concept in the Mid-Council Commission Report is that all structures of the church should serve "missional congregations." There is much conversation and considerable confusion over what 'missional' means.
We offer these definitions:
- Missional congregations: the central organizing principle is personal and communal participation in the mission of God in Jesus Christ to redeem and heal all of creation.
- A Missional PC(USA): every structure beyond the congregation exists so that congregations can fulfill their mission.
Here is a 2 minute video that help us to define a key term in the Mid-Council Report.
