Ryan, a few thoughts...

The questions you suggest for exegeting the community are great for two reasons: discovering the needs of the community, and inviting those who are already mission-minded (whether Christian or not) to join the church movement.

However, as an evangelist who wants to help people become missional, I find Rick Warren's questions helpful. They help me discern where people are at, how to start where they are at (speak their language), and invite them into a community that is not only missional, but a community that helps people transform into being missional.

In my limited experience, I have found that churches that focus solely on inviting people into a missional community without incorporating a process of _becoming_ missional either grow older and smaller over time, or they rely on other churches/para-church ministries to develop those people.

Just my two cents..

Otherwise don't make the mistake of forcing the issue. Second step, this is when you are sure that your child has a heart for ballet, is to make sure that you give him or her the all out support he or she expects from you. Support is both financial but more important is the moral aspect of it all.

You have to have the money to buy the things for the Nike heels ballet lessons. The wardrobe is very important since it psyches the child. In short it feeds the excitement and the yearning to learn. It can also boost the confidence of the child if the dress and shoes are sufficient to be able to do what are required during the lessons such as jumps and splits. The lessons Jordan Women Heels need not be expensive.
