TMN is a European and North American partnership seeking to develop an international conversation around the missional agenda inspired by Newbigin’s question: Can the west be converted?
We are convinced that questions about a missional church need to be addressed as part of a dynamic interaction with western culture(s). With that in mind TMN is shaped by the following convictions:
- The missionary God is working in western culture and we need to observe and discern the shape of the new contours the Holy Spirit is directing us towards.
- This process requires us to dwell in and operate out of spiritual disciplines and practices.
- The local context in which the church finds itself is profoundly important. The voice of God’s ordinary people in discovering the activity of God matters and must be invited into the debate.
- We embark on this journey of discovery in a spirit of mutual reciprocity with our contexts. We are learners open to continual conversion. There are no preformed solutions or formulas. Experimentation and innovation are important gifts from which to learn.
