People are rooted in their neighborhoods. Neighborhood churches aim to make disciples who are investing themselves in their neighborhood, their local context, school, and non-profit. We sometimes see a deeper level of commitment when someone is participating in a neighborhood church and we believe focusing on one neighborhood amplifies impact instead of scattering it.
A neighborhood city collective is a group of churches that collaborate together and share values and resources as the reach the neighborhoods around their city.
We can help you think about starting or joining a neighborhood city collective.
To plant in a neighborhood city collective, you have to really want to be on a team. You might be a strong leader and have a distinct calling to lead a local church, but not want to go alone. Partnerships mean you don’t have to.
There does have to be a willingness for mutual submission. You may have to be humble and do things in a way you hadn’t thought about before.
