 Reformed Worship | It Takes a Team: Examining the Worship Planning Process
For example, a congregation may put lots of energy into the second stage (devise), and next to nothing into the fourth and fifth stages (realize and analyze).
It may be that a bit of focused tweaking is all that’s needed to greatly improve your congregation’s worship planning.

We can get all worked up about definitions about what it means to be missional and what missional theology is, but at some point we have to just start doing it, living it and cultivating communities of faith that are the hands and the feet of Jesus and are a foretaste of the kingdom.
To get to the point, I thought it might be helpful to share just a few of the ways we have learned how our worship gatherings can intentionally cultivate a community of people that see themselves as missionaries in their world.
While we are far from perfect and are on a great learning curve, we have found these simple practices of worship to be very, very helpful.
