Missional Map-Making:
Skills for Leading in Times of Transition
By Alan J. Roxburgh (Jossey-Bass/Leadership Network, 2010)
“Too much of our current church life is focused around meeting the needs of expressive individuals. Those who argue that meeting needs is a strategy to get people into the church miss the point. If we communicate a Gospel that says at the front door that Jesus is all about meeting my needs (remember, most of the time we are talking about middle-class expressive individualists who are already the most pampered generation on earth), then at some point we are going to have to tell them that, in fact, the opposite is the case. Jesus actually came to call them into a life that requires them to let go of their needs.” –Alan J. Roxburgh, from the book
