Missional Communities (MC’s) are the primary means by which our church seeks to live as God’s family on mission in our neighborhoods. A Missional Community is a group of people who have been and are being transformed by the Gospel who commit to living out God’s mission together by demonstrating and declaring the Gospel to each other and to those who don’t know Jesus. To clarify, a Missional Community is NOT primarily a small group, Bible study, support group, social activist group, or weekly meeting. Simply put, in the Gospel we are transformed by God’s work for God’s work, so having a specific missional focus is the purpose of these groups.
Our hope is that every person who is committed to the Pillar Okinawa family and mission will be fully involved in a Missional Community. Eventually, the Missional Communities in a region will multiply and together form a new gathering of Pillar Church.
