What is a Missional Church?

From a paper by Tim Keller, he lists five elements of a missional church.

1. Discourse in the vernacular.
2. Enter and re-tell the culture's stories with the gospel.
3. Theologically train lay people for public life and vocation.
4. Create Christian community that is counter-cultural and counter-intuitive.
5. Practice Christian unity as much as possible on the local level.
