Traditional mainline congregations need resources as they address the challenges of a changing context. This project focused on a congregation in transition. The author explored the use of resources from the 'missional church' conversation. She used the 'Three Zone Model of Missional Leadership' and 'The Missional Change Model' by Roxburgh and Romanuk in a process of participatory action research. Attention was paid to the role that renewal of baptismal identity and worship play in helping a congregation transition toward missional identity. With appropriate resources, transition can prepare a congregation for the Spirit's transformative work.
