Zero COMMUNITIES (coming soon!)
A Zero Community is group of people who actively live out God’s mission for "Zeros" together. Functioning as an extended family, they demonstrate the Gospel to specific people groups through relationships, service, and a message of reconciliation.
DEFINING TRAITS OF A ZERO COMMUNITY
- A group of between 10-30 people (small enough to care, big enough to dare).
- Has a healthy balance of reaching, connecting, and sending.
- Has a defined missional focus for a specific area, people, group and/or issue.
- Looks outwards through a mixture of service, relationship building, and verbal witness.
- Does not require that members be professing Christians to belong.
- Takes place in community and often revolves around shared times of food and fun.
- Gathers informally throughout the week, not just at formal meetings.
MISSIONAL FOCUS OF A ZERO COMMUNITY
Each Zero community has a missional focus. This is an essential element to a missional community.
WHO, not WHAT: A missional focus needs to be on people, not programs. We need to ask WHO we are called to serve and engage, not the things.
Person(s) of Peace: Community member who will help us reach our WHO. (Luke 10:6)
Real Needs: The tangible needs of our WHO.
Where: The geographic location of our WHO.
How: The ways in which we will serve our WHO.
