NEL, Malan. Called and sent to make a difference: Radical missionality. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2017, vol.38, n.1, pp.1-9. ISSN 2074-7705.

The concept 'missional' is well established within the so-called missional conversation. It is however often 'questioned' by scholars and pastors for different reasons. Sometimes it is almost dissected from the rest of theology, especially systematic theology. Recent developments in this field are given an account of in this article. The main purpose of the article is not to argue a case for the concept again. The purpose is to focus on whether theology and ministry in any way understand the radical implications if and when we are missional in being and doing. My assumption within the field of research on rediscovering discipleship in the development of missional congregations is that none of us have thought through how radical missionality is, especially over and against a 'volkskirchliche' understanding and practice of church. The article will also touch on some radical changes in philosophy of ministry and doing ministry within a missional paradigm. INTRADISCIPLINARY AND/OR INTERDISCIPLINARY IMPLICATIONS: The article focuses mainly on Practical Theology and specifically Congregational Development ('Missionarische Gemeindeaufbau'). This field stands in a direct relationship with Missiology. The article contributes to a growing understanding of the radical nature of missional thinking and practice in congregational life and ministry.
