Prayer for the City
January 2019 — September 2019
From January 2019 onwards, we will begin to meet monthly with a core group in Vancouver. The heart for these times is to intercede for our city, to receive teaching, and to seek God’s direction on which neighbourhood we feel uniquely drawn to serve.
During this time, we will also be fundraising, setting up systems and structures, and starting the process of transitioning out of our home churches.
Monthly Gatherings in the City
September 2019 — March 2020
By September 2019, we will begin holding monthly public interest gatherings, centred around the same format of worship, teaching and prayer. In these gatherings we will share more about the vision and mission of the church. The goal of these meetings is to establish a larger community of people interested in planting a church with us in 2020. During this time, we will also invest pastorally into our growing church community, as both Jason and Chris will have transitioned their pastoral responsibilities to our developing core group.
Moving In and Pre-Launch Gatherings
March 2020 — September 2020
In the first 6 months of 2020, our team and their families will move into Vancouver. We will begin the process of investing in our neighbourhoods, building community, and gathering with others who move to Vancouver with us.
Over this time, our pastoral leadership team will have fully transitioned from their previous pastoral responsibilities and roles, and will have come onto staff with the church plant. In this season we will begin to host pre-launch gatherings, train our team, finalize a venue, as well as plan for the Fall Launch of our weekly services, community groups, and programs such as Alpha.
September 2020 — December 2020
By September 2020, we will be holding weekly services as a community, as well as regular community groups, and outreach to the community through Alpha.
