Dave Fitch puts words to something I've sensed as I see all the different types of people and churches who talk about being "missional."
He talks about Reformed Missional, Anabaptist Missional, and Pragmatic Missional. You'll have to read the post to find the definitions and descriptions, as I don't have time right now to recap them.
I don't think that any one of those groups needs to have a corner on using the term, but it's helpful to see the differences, because they are tensions I've felt eve within myself as I struggle to define what "missional church" ought to be.

I don’t know. I always thought that missional meant reaching out to others that don’t know Christ that they may know Him.
That can take on many different aspects of mission.
That is where our Christian freedom kicks into high gear. There is no certain way to do it.
