Missional Small Groups bring Mission and Community to Church

In the video (see link above) from the Leadership Network program, THE SHOW, Pastor Matt Carter of the Austin Stone Community Church in Austin Texas discusses their failure at developing community through small groups…and what they did about it.  He discusses how they had very little mission and very little community when their groups were focused on fellowship (eating) and bible study.  But after a lot of sou searching,  they changed the focus to being missional, and things began to change

Key point: When we focused on community, we got neither community or mission. When we focused on mission we got both community and mission.
