"I love the older term ‘missionary order’ because that it conveys a sense of calling and ordering. There's a long tradition going back to the earliest monasteries in the late Roman era of having an actual written document that defines what your community is like."
"Every community has weeds, and weeds are a problem, but often the bigger problem is how we handle those weeds."
"The New Testament says very little about leadership… it is much more concerned with the two basic thrusts which are faith and love—believing in Jesus and becoming like Jesus. If those are working in the community then the community will even begin to help or shape an immature leader and vice versa."
