Alex Absalom & Doug Paul – MC Starter Kit: The ‘ESSENTIAL’ Plan
Whether you’re a medium-sized church, small church or someone looking to a Missional Community yourself, this will deliver the goods.
The ESSENTIAL PLAN of the MC er Kit can take people who know nothing about Missional Communities all the way to becoming ninja Missional Community leaders who are multiplying MC’s and seeing extraordinary spiritual breakthrough. We use a tailored, 7 Step Process (details of this process at the end of this page), using stunning field notes (sent in the mail), videos, a private online community innovation lab and in-person training and coaching days with Alex and Doug. You’re not getting something where the learning ends when you need it most. With our innovative learning platform, you have access day-to-day, and month-to-month, as long as it’s helpful for where you’re at.
If you’re a church, buying our er Kit gives you the ability to share this amazing access with all of your church.

“While the concept of missional is simple, helping existing churches develop and multiply Missional Communities is one of the toughest challenges of our time. Alex and Doug are experienced missional practitioners and have worked with countless churches to help them make the leap in their congregations. Their approach takes biblically based and tested principles to help churches engage in a realistic process to launch Missional Communities.”
-Rev. Dr. Dana S. Allin, Synod Executive, ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians
“Doug and Alex walk the walk. They are grounded, humble, battle-hardened and wise practitioners. This resource has come through many hours of effort on the field and is now expertly distilled down for us as leaders to engage, be inspired and challenged and move towards growth. Their resources and coaching will help any leader gain clarity and momentum, in order to move deeper and go further in leadership.
-Rich Robinson, Director, 5QCollective
“Having walked the journey of moving a church down the missional path . . . I wish this resource had been available! I don’t know of two better people from whom to learn about all things missional than Alex and Doug. Don’t pass on this GREAT offer.”
-Greg Nettle, President, Stadia Church Planting
“Alex and Doug have both been an encouragement and challenge to me as I practice missional community in my own life and lead others to do the same. The er Kit is a significant help to those who are wanting to practically lead effective and flourishing missional communities over time. I’d strongly encourage you to take advantage of it!”
-Dr. Todd Engstrom, Executive Pastor of Ministry Strategies, The Austin Stone Community Church
“I think this will prove to be a revolutionary new way to equip, train and release pastors, churches and all the people of God to live into the kind of spiritual family the churches created for. It’s giving access to everyone at a price point that finally works.”
– Dave Rhodes, Pastor of Movement Initiatives and Discipleship, Grace Church, ATL. Founder of Younique and former US Team Lead of 3DM
