What We Do


We give ourselves to the church that is, to new expressions of church the world needs, and to the leaders who live at the center of it all. So that...

Churches

We work to equip churches to reimagine all it means to live on mission and make disciples in their immediate context.

Multiplication

We work to multiply movements of new disciples, leaders, and new expressions of church to reach the world of tomorrow.

Leaders

We work to see leaders continually transformed through deep intimacy with Christ and personal engagement in His mission to the world.

Moving Beyond


Jesus is always calling us beyond status quo and into lives of transformational intimacy, sacrificial mission, the adventure of multiplication, and supernatural expectation. We believe Jesus is pursuing you and we’d like to help.

Walking in Spiritual Authority
Article

The question is, how do we actually position ourselves to receive the spiritual authority God would like to pour out over us? What does that posture look like?

Thinking About a More Robust Missional Ecclesiology

Bill Randall / Pioneering Initiatives
Leading in a Changing World
Article

Ingrown, consumeristic, churches often have robust missional slogans, but sorely lack a functional, missional DNA. It is possible to reinvent such churches and help them become authentic, outwardly focused conduits of the gospel. However, this transformation requires the power of Jesus and extra-ordinary courageous leaders who stay the course until such costly change becomes evident.
