- Pray, Pray, Pray:
We cannot over emphasize the importance of prayer. No one should start a community without seeking God and His leadership.
- Start for the Right reasons:
Many today are starting for wrong reasons. If you are wanting to start a community simply because you are disgruntled or frustrated with the conventional church, we want to caution you. That is not to say you shouldn't start an organic church but be careful that you don't simply take the steeple from the conventional building and place it on your house and sit in that building complaining about the one you left.
Churches and communities should start with a missional focus. Remember it is about the harvest and when we gather and rehash the "flaws of the conventional church model" we tend to lose our focus on why we are gathering.
We encourage you to pray through this issue and if there are undealt with feelings and issues these will hinder your community and the work you are trying to accomplish.
- Contact us for Partnership:
Here is where the steps take a turn. Because each person and each community and each circumstance is unique and different we avoid giving "next steps" without some dialogue. We would love to hear your story, catch your passion, and help you dream of what could happen next. From there we can determine together how to proceed.

- Importance of Coaching:
Why would someone like Tiger Woods need a coach. What we know is this: We all are far more effective when we have good coaches in our life helping us along on the journey. Ministry should never be a lone ranger mindset. National studies done over the last 10 years reveal that church planters who follow no specific training track and develop no plan have a 30% chance for the church to be functioning and viable five years later. Church planters who trained, develop a plan and are coached have an 89% chance for the church to be functioning and viable five years later. This is why we so deeply believe that training, planning and coaching are critical! For more on coaching click here.
