For Church Leaders

It’s all about collaboration, innovation and connection with like-minded missional leaders and churches to grow the Kingdom through multiplication.

For Church Planters

As apprentice leaders in our network, you’ll learn the ropes with practical application opportunities through relationships and the support to help you succeed.

We are a tribe of churches who will link arms to make Ohio a bright light for Jesus Christ for many generations to come.

We are focused on helping healthy reproducing churches saturate their regions with disciple-makers for Jesus Christ.

We currently have 4 forming networks of reproducing churches targeting Cleveland, Canton/Akron, Youngstown and Columbus.

Each network leader will:

  • meet quarterly for community of practice intensive sessions
  • participate in monthly coaching calls
  • lead area network gatherings that focus on our values

Our Values

We are a…

Jesus Movement

A commitment to gospel theology expressed in the Lausanne Covenant.

We will focus our movement collaboration on primary theology while respecting our differences on secondary issues. Since only Jesus brings hope, salvation, purpose and renewal we are a movement that is obsessed with knowing, exalting, teaching and following Jesus so that all people have an opportunity to encounter Him through a local expression of His family.

Relational Movement

A commitment to show up in both friendship and partnership.

We will show up to network meetings, and make intentional efforts to cultivate trusting friendships with other pastors that translate in to actual tangible mission together. Since we are united to each other through the resurrection of Jesus we connect to each other on a relational level (church to church, pastor to pastor, friend to friend, team to team). These connections empower and provide support so that churches never feel like they’re alone in a foreign land

Innovative Movement

A commitment to diverse incarnation in “every nook and cranny.”

We will innovate ways to see the Kingdom of God influence our communities that include but go beyond church planting. The local church functions best within a local context. We believe the Holy Spirit is always looking for new ways to express the life of Christ in a community and so we are committed to “fan into flame” new ways of being the Church in our local contexts.

Reproducing Movement

A commitment to multiply disciples, communities, and churches.

We will multiply the churches at every level with a commitment to residencies as the primary vehicle to multiply. We are committed to Kingdom movement so we create simple systems to encourage reproduction on every level of church life from individual leaders to new Huddles & Missional.
