A critical part of our mission is how we involve individuals, families, and the local church in our work. From the moment the First Church of Jerusalem decided to ask seven people to start making certain that everyone in their congregation had enough to eat, the Church was asked to focus on being a family in word and deed. They had a problem, and they needed a solution, so they adapted their structures to make certain that they were not just talking about loving their neighbors as themselves, but actually doing it. We believe that today’s church needs to be challenged in the same way and must play a key contributor and collaborator role with our work.
By recognizing that local mission remains a fundamental responsibility of the Church, we endeavor to include families and the local church gatherings in our missional work by offering Christians the following:
– Mission focused actions that allow people to use their spiritual gifts in ministry
– Help people grow in their faith by loving their neighbor through one-on-one relationships
– Building up the local church as a caring community
– Offering local missional projects to the local church
To support this mission, we offer the following ways to get involved in our ministry.
