Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Romans 12:10


We will provide a supportive environment where staff members can develop their God given abilities, teams can function more efficiently and churches can develop a missional plan.

Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future. Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
Proverbs 19:20


We will help our churches connect to their community, to one another and to the larger vision of God’s purpose for them and their ministry.

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Hebrews 10:24-25


We will work with people, churches and leadership, both locally and nationally, in missional efforts to further the Kingdom of God.

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19
