I'll get to the nitty gritty questions soon, but here are the principles and practices that make up our DNA.
- One Church with Multiple Campuses
- Focused: We have four core ministries that we seek to reproduce in all campuses. They are (a) Worship: Worship that is biblically and culturally relevant; (b) Small Groups: Small groups that focus on discipleship, community and mission; (c) Children and Student Ministries: Children and Student ministries that assist parents in making disciples and equip children and youth to reach out to others; and (d) The P.E.A.C.E. Plan: Local and global outreach of Planting churches, Equipping servant leaders, Assisting the poor, Caring for the sick and Educating the next generation.
- Multiplication: We seek to continually multiply at every level—individual, small group and congregation.
- Centrally Supported: We utilize central staff and resources to support core ministries on all campuses as a matter of effectiveness in our mission and the stewardship of people and material resources, while developing campus specific areas of ministry.
More to come tomorrow.
