Gospel Communities on Mission

What is a Gospel Community on Mission?

A gospel community on mission is a group of people who are learning to follow Jesus together in a way that renews their city. They aren’t fancy. In fact, they can be a pretty messy community of everyday citizens who are devoted to Jesus, to one another, and to their neighbors.

A gospel community on mission is our way to organize the church to gather for spiritual growth and send groups of people on a common mission to love the city.

Our communities exist because of the gospel. We all find ourselves individually and communally growing into a deeper understanding and application of the gospel. From this source, we are taking the gospel to the neighborhood, our city and our world through intentional missional engagement. These intentional communities center themselves on the truth of the gospel.

Joining a Gospel Community on Mission

Choosing a gospel community usually comes down to a few factors.

1. Relational connection.

Maybe you have already connected to someone in Bread&Wine and their GC might be a good place to start.

2. Where you live.

It’s always easier to be in community if you don’t have to “commute” to it. 

3. The people a community serves.

Each gospel community has a common area of service they are engaging, whether it is caring for refugees, foster children, recovery and their families, or victims of human trafficking. Many times, people choose to engage a community based on who they are compelled to serve.
