We envision a church that is vibrant and multigenerational, where the older share their spiritual maturity and life experience with the younger, where worship engages the next generation, where the youth and kids ministry thrives by the investment of all, and where there are safe places for connection.
We envision a people made of members of the next generation, families with children, grandparents, single parents, single adults, skeptics, seekers, and unbelievers returning to church.
We envision an attitude where pursuit is the norm, outsiders are befriended, where authenticity is valued, service is practiced, and all generations are engaged.
We envision an older generation committed to reaching out and passing on God’s grace, to leaving a legacy, to pursuing an unreached generation, to be distributors and not hoarders of grace, to having a “tour guide” attitude toward developing others’ faith, and to never tiring of or retiring from service.
We envision a next generation of Christ-followers who honor and value those who came before them, who are active in service, generous, and passionate about pursuing outsiders, who connect with intention and authenticity, and who walk alongside others in faith.
