Jesus was radical and he was missional

From Jesus the Radical Pastor:

Jesus was a pastor (a shepherd) and while he likes old ladies and sports and the deacon chair and Kiwanis and type A’s and the rest, the last thing to ever enter his mind was to be non-missional. Jesus = Shepherd = Missional. Jesus loved wildly and left the flock and took the dangerous journey for one here, another there, a handful here, two depressed ones over there. The lost need the pastors more than the found according to Jesus.
So, when the exalted Christ gave “pastors” to the church, they are no less missional than apostles and evangelists. Will we continue to let limp evangelical popularism define “pastor” or will we let Jesus Christ define “pastor”?
Now, let’s go get a beer.
