Here you go:

#3 Disciplemaking

#4 Missional Practices
Incarnating the Gospel: Practice JesusSince incarnating the gospel is about being Jesus, believers have to be good followers of Jesus. They have to learn from Jesus. They have to imitate Him. To put it simply, incarnating the gospel is about doing what Jesus did.

#5 Missional Church

#6 Missional Transformation
Proximity and PresenceTo incarnate the gospel, Christians must live within the culture they are trying to reach. This requires proximity—getting close to people.

#7 Missional Movements
Who was St. Patrick?The missionary movement that Patrick started spread and multiplied churches which continued to send teams into settlements to multiply churches and introduce people to faith in Jesus Christ. In two or three generations, all of Ireland had become substantially Christian.
