The Austin Stone Missional Community blog is putting out some good posts. This post helpfully raises missionary questions that will promote MCs that think and act more wisely, communicating the gospel with greater missional savvy. Here are some questions your MC can ask in the process of understanding your culture and mission:

  1. What are the emotional needs of the elderly, families, teens, singles, men, women, children?
  2. What are the social, economic or educational needs of the same?
  3. What are the flaws and difficulties with the systems of the community?
  4. What is their worldview?
  5. What redemptive analogies best fit this culture?
  6. What does this culture understand about the basic components of the gospel story?
  7. What questions are being asked in the culture that point to their need for the gospel?
