City Church Network: 2015 Vision & Goals
Our goal is to see the ten churches of City Church Network each plant one new church in the home of one lost family, baptize them, and disciple them into spiritual maturity with the same Acts 1:8 vision DNA.

2015 Vision & Goals: Step-By-Step Instructions
My Disciple: The first step of our vision is to hold one another accountable to making disciples. This task is the greatest endeavor to which we can commit . Examine everyone you know at your home, neighborhood, school, workplace, recreation field, etc. Make a priority list of those with whom you have the most influence, and then ask the Holy Spirit to help you identify and focus on one disciple. Pray, study the Bible, and go on mission together weekly for one year.
My Local Church: Step two of our vision is to participate weekly in a local church. Commit yourself to a healthy, reproducing church in your local community. Focus on being a servant leader and encourager. Meet needs in your local church and contribute consistently to church health and strengthening.
My Harvest Field: Jesus Christ is Lord of the harvest, and he intentionally planted you in your local community by sovereign design and Great Commission purpose. Make a covenant with the Lord to be a fisher of lost people in your local community. Research your neighborhood and pray regularly for your neighbors. Map out your community and list all the villages in your field such as apartment complexes, market places, subdivisions, and schools. In this harvest field, God will use you to plant a new church in a house of peace!
My Harvest Team: Our Lord rarely sent disciple makers out alone. His custom was to send teams of 2 or 3 out for Great Commission work. Recruit your disciple and/or a member of your local church to prayer walk your neighborhood in search of a lost home in which to plant the kingdom of God through a new Bible study gathering.
Our House of Peace: As you prayer walk and knock on doors, you will encounter many strangers with needs who are either opposed to you, indifferent, or open to your help. Filter through everyone you meet to one home where you see the most potential for a new church. Identify the new leader, and train them how to obey Jesus.
My Global Region: We are an Acts 1:8 generation. Whatever we do locally has global effects. Pick a #NoPlaceLeft region and pray with faith for the Great Commission task to be complete there every day.
Scriptures to encourage you on this year’s spiritual journey:
If the Son sets you free, you are truly free.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.
You did not choose Me, but I chose you. I appointed you that you should go out and produce fruit and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you.
“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
Summoning the Twelve, He gave them power and authority over all the demons, and power to heal diseases. Then He sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience, with joy giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light. He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves.
