Missional Communities

Missional Communities are the vehicle by which we live out what it means for us to be a missional church in our everyday lives. Legacy Church is a family of disciples making disciples. We do not separate discipleship from mission from evangelism. Our strategy is to gather together on Sundays to worship Jesus and study the Scriptures, but then scatter throughout the week as Missional Communities.

We define a Missional Community as: A community of Christians, living together on mission with God, in obedience to the Holy Spirit, who demonstrate the gospel tangibly and declare the gospel creatively to a specific group of people.

Missional Communities are the way we connect deeply with others in our church as we work together to further the gospel. These smaller groups of people (5-15ish) provide an opportunity to know others and be known within Legacy. Through these relationships, we mutually challenge and encourage one another to truly believe our identity in Christ and live life in a way that demonstrates to the world who God truly is. Each Missional Community identifies their unique mission within the larger community and meets regularly to eat, learn, pray, and be together on mission. The purpose of the Missional Community is not just to grow, but to multiply in a way that leads to a gospel movement throughout our city.
