barry clarke has a great quote from Ed Stetzer. He even takes a dig at country music - that's in the original - it's not my addition - although I might have added it if it wasn't.
All types of churches should be simply missional. What we are advocating is for church leaders to distil their ideology of what church is to the irreducible minimum that defines a church as God’s gathered people, sent to a particular community as His redemptive gift to that community.

We need all types of missional churches–big, small, traditional, contemporary, with country music (did we say that?), hip-hop, some with guitars, some with organs. We need churches in homes and churches in well-marked buildings.

The container is not the issue. The issue is not staying contained.
Ed Stetzer
