To that end we have set our sights on becoming the sort of church that will thrive and make a lasting kingdom impact, now and into the future, by pursuing these four strategic priorities over the next 10 years, starting now.
1. RADICAL GENEROSITY - we aim to fund our church operations independently of offerings. Why? So we can give it all away to make a real difference in people's lives.
2. A REPUTATION FOR DOING GOOD - we aim to be known for the work that we do and the difference that we make in our community and world, not our place on the street.
3. RELEVANCE - right now the under 30s comprise less than 10% of the church. We aim to shift that figure to 60% or 70% so the future is always present.
4. REMOTE PARTICIPATION - digital technology has reconfigured the way we live and the way we do church. We aim to harness the potential of this reality by creating ways for us to connect, engage and be equipped in the same things without always having to be in the same place.
The Bible calls this discipleship. A disciple is a learner, someone who is learning to live the Way of Jesus.
For us that looks like learning and growing in these three ways:
Learning to listen to, obey and follow Jesus in all of life.
Learning to connect and contribute as part of a local church.
Learning to be a blessing in our world and invite others to discover the way of Jesus.
