Together: Together with a Network
Brandon Grant — founding and lead pastor of Rise City Church in Lakeside, CA
Nathan Hawkins — West Regional Executive for Stadia Church Planting
Right before Jesus left planet Earth, He reminded His closest followers of His vision for how the mission would be accomplished and gave us this third ‘great’ in John 17:22-23: “…that they may be one as we are one — I in them and you in me — so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me…” This is the Great Collaboration. Yes, we are to “Go”; yes, we are to “Love”; but the missing piece from the mission is that we are to “Go” … and “Love” … but “TOGETHER!”
More churches are needed in the ever-changing spiritual landscape of cities across the United States. This is particularly true in San Diego – one of the least-churched cities in the US. And in order for more churches to be planted to see the spiritual landscape of a city transformed, it’s going to take churches working together to multiply together. In this webinar, the story of the San Diego Church Planting Movement (SDCPM) will be explored to learn about how churches are rallying together to start new churches through methods from planting to campuses to mergers.
Let’s Get It Together and commit to the whole Jesus mission to GO–LOVE–TOGETHER. As we each commit to do our part to plant and multiply churches together, we will see level 5 multiplying churches result, movement occur, and the mission of Jesus accomplished. (Matthew 28, Matthew 22 & John 17)
