We must reexamine our approach
Missiologists state that if every single church in America became a church of 2,500+ people, our current outreach methods would, at their maximum potential, only reach 40% of America’s population.
We must re-think, re-set, and re-engage differently if we are to reach every man, woman, and child with the gospel.
Resulting in Disciples Who Make Disciples
We will give every man, woman, and child repeated opportunities to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that the harvest is right here, right now, and requires the responsibility of every Christ-follower to engage in increasing their gospel footprint and making disciples who make disciples.
What is Gospel Footprint?
Courses / Cohorts / Resources / Leader Development / Church Planting
Gospel Footprint serves as the movement of discipleship DNA and training process intended to equip and engage disciples to disciple others. It is the overarching expression of The Alliance Southeast that lays the foundation for developing leaders and reaching cities through church planting and missional communities.
Indeed, our faith calls us to action and accountability as God’s people. The Old and New Testaments of the Bible express a preoccupation with justice. For example, biblical teaching found in Isaiah, “Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression” and Hebrews, “… remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering” are just two examples of the ancient Judeo-Christian witness to a God with unwavering commitment to justice.
A REFINING FIRE
An Alliance church in Olympia, Washington, endures hardship and places the needs of its community above its own.
When Pastor Tim Heffer and his wife, Meg, of Hidden Creek Community Church in Olympia, Washington, were returning from a short-term missions trip to Bosnia in 2009, they had one thing on their mind: SEEDS.
The frantic holiday season typically drowns out the beginning of the new year. You might make a new year’s resolution, say a prayer of thankfulness to be done with the last year, or jot down a few things you’re looking forward to. Most of us kick off the year as exhausted and frantic as we ended the last one. Our culture drives us to move from one thing to the next without giving thought to the events that just happened. When we do this, we never engage the happiness, pain, fear, or struggle with our hearts or minds—our bodies are simply moving through it.
