Matt Carter on Missional Small Groups

In this video Pastor Matt Carter from Austin Stone Community Church in Texas shares what they learned as a church about how to form authentic, Biblical, missional small groups. Matt planted Austin Stone Community several years back along with Christian artist Chris Tomlin, and he talks frankly about some of the mistakes they made in their first years as a church. Here is the money quote on small groups:

What we found is when we aimed simply for community, we got neither community nor mission. But when we aimed for mission, we got mission and community almost every single time.

    Much, much wisdom in that quotation above.

    As we serve others, we are indeed bonded together.

    God speed!
