Launching Missional Communities This "field guide" by Mike Breen and Alex Absalom is endorsed by people like Alan Hirsch. "Missional Communities (a community of 20-50 people on mission together) have been at the forefront of a revitalization that has been happening in many churches in England and throughout Europe for the past 15 years . . . Written by two of the leading experts on MCs, this book will give you the practical, flexible steps you will need to see discipleship and mission breathed into your church through Missional Communities."

Missional Small Groups by M. Scott Boren. "Small groups are a great place to connect with other churchgoers, but many wonder, is this all there is? Is sitting in a living room, talking about a book or watching a video the extent of what we can do together? Isn't being a Christian community about something more than this? Pastor and author Scott Boren thinks so. In this latest release from missional thinktank Allelon, Boren gives leaders and members of small groups the tools they need to make an impact on their communities. Beginning with a gentle critique of current small group models, Boren goes on to show how a uniquely Christian paradigm can set groups free to transform their communities. The final section of the book offers over twenty practices that groups can do to become more missional. Ultimately Missional Small Groups is about helping groups follow Jesus by equipping them to bring his message and healing to a hurting world."Missional Small Groups.

The Tangible Kingdom Primer is a work for small groups that combines spiritual formation and missional living. In it, small groups learn how to live missionally, rather than making missional a program. Here is an article on the Tangible Kingdom Primer.

"I agree with you that there is a significant lack of qualified/trained elders/leaders. I have found there is a significant lack of those able to discern and lead well within church leadership, and often the theory of Scripture can be left as theory…"

"Leadership is a funny subject. There are many different types and standards of leaders inside and outside the church. Sometimes it is not about who a person is as a leader but what another person as a follower is looking for in and for themselves…"
