Missional Community Spotlight: Downtown Boulder MC
Missional communities are the primary way we connect with others and live together on mission. These smaller groups of people provide an opportunity to know others and be known within The Well community. Through these relationships, we mutually challenge and encourage one another to truly believe our Identity in Christ and live a life that shows the world who God truly is.
We are working to provide a brief spotlight on each of our missional communities on the blog to give potential participants some insight into the different missional community experiences. To find out more about missional communities, please contact our Missional Community Director, Matt McGahen.
