What is a Missional Person?

Missional people are people who live a lifestyle of adopting the posture, thinking, behaviors, and practices of a missionary in order to engage others with the gospel message.

In short, they are constantly aware of the needs and lostness of the people around them and they strive to impact those people towards Christ. Let me give you a real example by telling you a story about my friend Dee.

Dee has attended CCC for a couple of years. Before Christmas she was ringing bells outside an Omaha Wal-Mart when she saw a couple with two children coming out with several cart loads of groceries. There was a cab waiting but the cab refused to take the couple because they had too much stuff. As they sat there pondering what to do, Dee immediately recognized an opportunity to share Christ's love.

Dee gave them a ride home in her car, groceries and all, and even told the wife to call her every two weeks and she will give her a ride to Wal-Mart so they could save the cab money to buy a car at some point. After helping them carry their groceries inside their apartment, Dee realized this family had very little and almost nothing under the tree for Christmas. So Dee and her husband came back later in the week, bringing a few presents for their girls and a gift card to Wal-Mart for mom and dad. A relationship has been built that will allow Dee and her husband great opportunity to tell them about Jesus.

This story says it all. What a great example of missional living!
