New faith communities emerge from engaging new people in new missions, new worship times or locations, new fellowship, or study groups where they can find a relationship with Christ. These new opportunities create avenues for lives to be touched and transformed by God's grace.

Leadership development helps individuals learn about themselves while growing in their personal skills and abilities. It empowers leaders to create and adapt to new circumstances and opportunities that will build vitality in their congregation. Leadership development identifies and forms new leaders capable of visioning and inspiring social and scriptural holiness that make disciples for Jesus Christ.

Transformational worship glorifies God. As God meets us, we find our voice and lives are transformed as our faith grows. Worship sends us to change the world by doing God’s work of service and justice.
