Some churches send their people out to impact the community and world beyond them. Others have heavy programs inside the church designed to draw them into the building.
There is some hard feelings on this issue. Its been suggested that the dichotomy between attractional vs. missional church was a little unfair and has created a gap that isnt really there.
Others say its a helpful way of understanding two different outlooks on how a church views its ministry focus – either flowing outwards into the community or drawing people into ministry of the church.
A new video from Peter Dominey of Church From Scratch sketches the difference. What do you think?
