What is missing from many of our efforts and strategies? Doing it Together! We are all very familiar with the Great Commission and the challenge to “Go.” There has been much taught on the Great Commandment and the need to go with “Love.” But it is the last part of Jesus’ mission – which was Jesus’ final prayer – that we have forgotten. It’s the Great Collaboration – that we are to go in love Together!

Joining a network is just one of the ways you can fulfill the Great Collaboration. Check out the resources below for more information on the value of networks, their different expressions, and starting your own.

The Value of Networks

We are convinced that more networks will lead to more churches being planted. That’s why we want to help you get into a network. Networks build the kingdom not individual castles; and networks build the kingdom by tearing down the walls that divide! An added benefit of a church multiplying network is that you get to be part of a growing group of friends on mission together. Click here to read more.
