Local Engagement is a set of programs designed to join the local and global community in being the body of Christ.
The body of Christ has many parts. To be the whole body each part must be appreciated, valued, and given the space to be and do what God has called them to. Community Engagement seeks to bring all people as Christ followers together to live, work, and serve God.
Imagine feet that walk with the wounded, visit the imprisoned, go to the outcasts, find the forgotten, stand against injustice, carry the weak, and run to the lonely? Imagine voices that share the Gospel with the lost, counsel the confused, speak up for the voiceless, encourage the depressed, comfort the sick, and pray with the grieving?
We believe that as we are being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit, we can transform our worlds in Jesus name by engaging our neighborhoods, communities, workplaces, and schools through mentoring, ministry partners, missional communities, and church multiplication.
