Perhaps more than anything else, this ministry is about relationship. Relationship with the Father and relationship in a network of believers from various backgrounds, denominations, churches and locations connecting in agreement to advance His Kingdom.Community advances God's purposes and provides a mirror for the condition and maturity of our soul and character, individually. Where the individual is healthy and mature, they will operate with healthy and mature boundaries within the group.In that framework of healthy relationship, continued maturity is fostered and Kingdom advancement is forwarded. Necessary components for a productive and healthy dynamic includes:
- Healthy heart – Scripture says that we must, above all else guard our heart, because life flows from it. We have to continually tend to the soil of our soul to keep it fresh and rich.
- Healthy boundaries – From healthy soil, the seed of the Word can produce healthy fruit including such relational necessities as peace, patience, kindness and self-control. Those fruits allow for decisions that are not chaotic, selfish, rude or hurtful.
- Healthy conflict – Conflict will happen, so it's just a matter of how healthy things are once it arrives. If the heart and the boundaries are tended to, then they can be the appropriate markers to guide the parties back to peace.
- Healthy relationship – This process is ongoing. With every successful experience, even the challenging ones, the depth of relationship can grow through the experience of engagement. The foxhole produces the depth of loyal and faithful friends.
We invite you into greater relationships by serving, giving, participating or just having a cup of coffee. We want to be available to you and we hope you are available to us. Thanks for being a part of what God is doing here.
