The Development Division seeks to our equip congregations to answer the particular calling that God has for each of them. We encourage our congregations to regularly and systematically evaluate their mission and ministry so that they can most effectively reach the communities of which they are a part. We are answering God’s call to plant new congregations and we are providing funding, programming, and other resources to help our congregations take the faithful risks necessary to passionately and courageously proclaim the gospel in our changing world. We place a special emphasis on encouraging congregations to develop disciples and meet human needs in the name of Jesus Christ.
The Congregational Vitality Team provides workshops and resources for our congregations to develop vibrant, vital ministries that reach their communities.
The Grants and Loans Team reviews grant and loan requests to help our congregations take faithful risks for the sake of the Gospel.
The MissionInsite Team facilitates our congregations’ use of the MissionInsite web-based demographic tools.
The New Church Development Team equips our existing congregations to plant new churches.
The Hispanic Ministry Team works with churches to provide support in working with the local Hispanic population. One such effort is to provide English as a Second Language tutoring.
