The main part of the discernment process is being at Community First! Village frequently, as often as possible during this time. You will be getting to know neighbors and Missionals while they get to know you. You will meet with your mentor frequently. Your mentor will answer questions, discuss the reading, podcasts, articles and videos you are studying, and walk with you as you tease out whether or not God is calling you to the Missional life. Once your mentor feels you are ready, you will write a page or two about your journey—what you have learned, how you’ve changed, how things differ from your original expectations, what God has revealed to you about His call. This essay is circulated to the Missional community prior to a final interview with the discernment team at our quarterly D-Team meeting (held December, March, June, and September). Next comes the vote. If you receive 70% positive responses from the Missional community, you are invited to become a Missional and your commissioning is scheduled for the next quarterly Missional all-hands meeting (January, April, July or October). After that, it’s official!
