Step 1: Exploration

If you and your leaders are asking, “How can we become more intentional about joining Jesus’ mission in the community around us?” Dwelling 1:14 can help. 

We will work with you to craft a customized approach which helps your congregation get started. Options in our tool box include the following:

"It sounds like intentional missional living will impact the life of our church and the way we grow. Is this going to affect our current programs?"

Dwelling 1:14 DOES NOT...

  • Take away from the importance of your church gathering as a faith family around the Word and sacraments or require a change in worship style
  • Require the replacement of any of your church’s present ministries or programs to be effective

Dwelling 1:14 can strengthen...

  • Your people living life with Jesus every day
  • Fellowship among members
  • Discipleship
  • Congregational care
  • The exercising of spiritual gifts
  • Spiritual formation for Jr. and Sr. High students
  • Young adult ministry
  • New member connection
  • Following up with worship guests


"What kind of teaching would our congregation experience?"

A biblical approach that delivers...

  • Theology of mission (John 1:14, 18 and 20:21)
  • How to perceive and respond to the Kingdom of God in our midst (Matthew 6:33)
  • How a person lives missionally (friendship and seeking the Kingdom of God vs. being an evangelism salesman. John 4:35)
  • How missional leaders are multiplied (Luke 8:1, 9:1, 10:1)
  • How a congregation supports such a lifestyle (Hebrews 10:24-25)
