What is The Road?
The Road to a Missional Church
“The Road to a Missional Church” is a program that seeks to equip the leadership in understanding that “the WHOLE church is called to bring the WHOLE Gospel into the WHOLE world.”
Through this program we invite the leadership into a reflection process about the nature and purpose of God for the church, equipping them to (1) Develop a missional VISION, (2) multiplying their missionary CAPACITY, and (3) propelling the COLLABORATION for the global impact of the church.
¿HOW DOES IT WORK?
Strengthening the church
Transforming the world.
Through The Road,
we build knowledge together
while reflecting about the
paradigms that define
the church and its mission.
Through the Participatory Leadership seminars, we work with the KNOWLEDGE, the ATTITUDES and the ACTION of the people, with the purpose of developing competencies that may help them incorporate new paradigms for the development of missional churches.
Traditional approach > Missional approach
- From a church centered mission to a Kingdom centered mission.
- From and inward focus to an outward focus.
- From the calling of a few to the vocational ministry of all.
- From the development of pograms to the development of people.
- From focussing in events to focussing in processes.
- From a local mission to a ¨glo-cal¨ mission.
“The biggest challenge of the church is not how to bring more people into the building, but how to pull the people out of the building so that the church can have an impact in the world.”

Participatory Leadership Seminars
Developing competencies in the leadership to bring about a change
When it comes to beliefs and convictions regarding the church and its divine purpose, we could say that practically every christian believes or at least is familiar with -The Great Commission-, right? The question remains, why then 2/3 of the world population have very little or no access to the Gospel? Why have we failed in accomplishing the task that was given to us more than 2000 years ago? Where are we failing? Is it our knowledge, our attitudes, our actions or may be the three of them together?
The participatory leadership seminars represent a great opportunity to grow in community as we build knowledge together while developing capacities that integrate knowledge, attitudes and actions to bring about the necessary changes for a missional growth. In order to approach each stage in the process, we will need to “listen, reflect and act.” These elements: knowledge, attitude and action, determine the response of the church towards the purpose of God for its existence.
