As a movement of churches, there is a need to provide key structures that will help us accomplish our mission to plant and support healthy reproducing churches and regional networks of churches throughout the world for the glory of God. These structures are broken down into three key areas that support this mission:
Healthy Mother, Healthy Children
Birthing Churches through Church planting
Resourcing Churches to be Effective Parents
The Servant and Leadership teams will initially focus their time and energy on developing these key structures and/ or partnering with those who already provide adequate solutions. There are two key communication vehicles that will serve these three functions: The Huddle & Online Community & Network Website.
The Huddle – Our Movement is based on relationships and a commitment to one another as family. Therefore, the ongoing connection is very important. The annual Huddle will continue to provide our key connecting point as a Movement of churches. Each Pastor in the Movement is asked to prioritize this yearly gathering.
Online Community & Network Website – The need to stay connected and share resources is what the Movement is all about. The web can be a wonderful mechanism for facilitating community. For example, Acts 29 has done a wonderful job creating “The City”, which creates a forum to share needs, seek input, share prayer requests, and share resources. There is a great need to aggressively seek a tool to use to accomplish and for all of us to be committed to using it. This would be different from our current website which serves those who are seeking information about us.
