Missional or Attractional?

A friend recently attended a gathering of College Ministers to share ideas. Some of the brightest and best were there. My friend said they basically fell into two categories...either Missional or Attractional. I have never really thought of ministries dividing strictly along those lines.

If your ministry were to be categorized as one of these, which would it be? Is that your intent?

In generalizations, I think deep south ministries tend toward the Attractional as they promote large group worship experiences and other events. The ministries in other parts of the country have to be more outreach oriented simply to survive or exist. Yet, I believe that a ministry that is Attractional can still and should be Missional in outreach to non-believers and "wandering believers".

Be intentional about what your ministry is.
