This oasis/nurture mindset—with its primary inward focus on member care and shepherding—is inadequate for making disciples of this highly mobile, diverse, accomplished group. By making room for apostolic leadership and switching to a missional paradigm, the IC can change from an oasis mentality to that of a strategic launching pad into God’s purposes for the TCC and for the global cities to which they’re scattered. This essay will demonstrate that today’s IC needs: apostolic leadership; early Ecclesia codes (such as Jesus-centered theology, a missional community and missional practices); vision for the city and Communitas to form an alternative missional paradigm applicable for today’s diaspora.
