On Sunday we introduced the language of Gather Grow Go.
We Gather because of the Gospel.
We Grow in the Gospel.
We Go with the Gospel.
It’s simple language, but it should be because we have been given a simple mission (Matt. 28:18-20). Yes, the mission is simple but it is hard to persevere in. We often struggle to keep our focus being easily distracted by other things, even good things. When we lose our focus, we will fail to persevere in the mission. The purpose of the Gather Grow Go language is to help us keep our focus.
The Gospel is central to all that we do, and therefore it is central to Gather Grow Go. Although this language is simple, it is not simplistic; no, it is also comprehensive. In the next three posts we will look at each of these in more detail and see how this language speaks to the life of the church on both the macro and micro scale. For example, you can see Gather Grow Go in the weekly corporate worship of the church (macro) and in a small group or one-to-one discipleship (micro) of fellow church members.
We hope this language will help us stay focused by giving each of us a quick framework to asses our lives with. We can ask ourselves, am I consistently Gathering Growing and Going in the life of the church?
