We are convinced that the best way to be disciples of Jesus and make disciples in our city is through missional communities.

What is a Missional Community?

A missional community is a group of people learning to follow Jesus together in a way that renews our city.

They aren’t fancy. In fact, they can be pretty messy communities of everyday citizens devoted to Jesus, to one another, and to their neighbors.

GOSPEL FORMATION

Missional communities focus on growing in our love of God.  We live in such a way as a community that we engage with God together through regular times of reading the Bible, prayer, and speaking the truths of Jesus to one-another.

Community

We intentionally share life together. We pursue deep community where we learn to love one another as family as we share meals, serve one-another, share our stories, grieve, mourn, and celebrating together.

Common Mission

Each missional community has a common mission—a specific group of people they seek to love through word and deed together. Some communities focus on their neighborhoods, their industry, or their schools. Others focus on caring for international students, families with disabilities, people and staff at nursing homes, or children in foster care.
