WHO WE ARE

BECOMING AN EXTENDED FAMILY ON MISSION

We aspire to be a multigenerational faith family on mission. How will we do that? First, by continuing to practice the daily rhythm of finding our home in the presence of Jesus. Second, we commit to being rooted and growing as spiritual sons and daughters. Third, we focus our energy on cultivating a discipleship-making culture where each of us strives to learn from, listen to, and live like Jesus.

OUR MISSION

 

We gladly get our hands dirty to live out our mission of cultivating lives of peace, hope, and purpose in Jesus. That's why the "ground" plays such a prominent role in our new logo.

 

 

 

OUR CALLING

 

For the last two years, we prayerfully sought to discern and test the renewed vision for our future as we witnessed plans for our new home for ministry take root. God revealed a simple plan: harness the tools He already generously provided: fallow farmland and a faithful remnant of co-workers.

 

As seed planters, waters, and cultivators, we operate as sent people, outwardly focused - like Jesus - demonstrating in tangible ways the character of God and reign of His Kingdom (both present and future).

OUR ESSENTIALS

 

Our leaders identified five key measures that we feel are critical to our mission and will help us shift to our goal of disciples making other disciples. Individually and collectively, we ask ourselves five questions relating to those measures to gauge how we are tracking toward our goal. So each day or week, we look at whether we:

 

  1. Pursue God: How did I cultivate my relationship with Jesus today?
  2. Boldly Go: How am I sharing the good news of the Kingdom?
  3. Foster Community: Who are my traveling companions?
  4. Elevate Others: How did I bless someone today?
  5. Live Purposefully: How am I investing my life in others?
