Communities on Mission (CoMs) are teams on a spiritual journey together, seeking to make Heaven on Earth visible in a specific place in their neighborhood or city.
THE COMMUNITY ON MISSION HAS TWO GOALS
1. SPIRITUAL GROWTH IN COMMUNITY
2. TO MAKE HEAVEN ON EARTH VISIBLE IN THEIR CITY
These two goals are connected and happen simultaneously. As a community grows spiritually, that growth and maturity translate into visible mission and service in the world. This is easily compared with Christ‘s relationship with the Father, which motivated him to go into the world. Community motivates us into action for our mission which flows back into the formation of the community. The spirituality of the Community on Mission will be strengthened through service together and through new people who become followers of Christ and join the community.
WHAT ARE COMMUNITIES ON MISSION?
A Community on Mission is an 8-12 person group that uniquely blends deep relationships with the call to serve others. Weekly meetings rotate between missional outreach and community gatherings. In the missional outreach, relationships are formed, and heaven on earth is made visible through the service of a specific group/place. Through the community gatherings, relationships are formed as participants share in life, faith, and growth.
