Missional Corner

What matters to you that matters to God?

At Indy Metro Church, we strive to equip, resource, and release our members to participate in God's redemptive work in the world. This is a crucial aspect of discipleship. We encourage our members to start their own "grass-roots" missional initiatives based on their unique talents, interests, and life experiences.

Our aim is to teach our members how to live missionally through the "Discover, Partner, Launch" process.

Who am I taking with me?
Don’t go alone! Now it’s time to find some people from Indy Metro to experiment with you as you implement your missional activity. Try things and see what works. Change what needs to be changed and keep what you need to keep! Create a sustainable rhythm for your missional activity.

I want to launch a new missional activity but am not sure where to start.

Faithful Presence

by David Fitch

"In Faithful Presence, noted pastor and scholar David Fitch offers a new vision for the witness of the church in the world. He argues that we have lost the intent and practice of the sacramental ways of the historic church, and he recovers seven disciplines that have been with us since the birth of the church. Through numerous examples and stories, he demonstrates how these revolutionary disciplines can help the church take shape in and among our neighborhoods, transform our way of life in the world, and advance the kingdom."

Happy Hour

by Hugh Halter

Hugh Halter calls us to rediscover the ancient art of party and to follow in the patterns of Jesus— redefining holiness not as exclusion from the world but as holy engagement with the world. Party is sacrament, and we must reorient our lives around friends, food, and celebration if we are to have any influence upon the culture right next door.
