We'll continue our emphasis on discipleship in two ways.
First, we will put more resources toward our "Grow" ministries. These include community groups and adult education, men's, women's, Lighthouse, marriage and senior ministries. God calls us to make disciples, not just converts.
We want everyone to be a in a community group. If you are not part of one, join one today. Click here to find a group that is the right fit for you.
Second, we will reorganize the Student Ministry to disciple more students and better match our mulitsite model. We have discovered that as we spread out geographically, we can't expect parents and students to drive to one campus location every week. Our intent is to have a fulltime student minister at every campus leading weekly meetings and community groups where the students live, go to school and worship. We see a day when Trinity's campuses are known for both their life-changing student ministry and the transformative impact they are having on their local schools.
2020 Vision Recap - Grow
"Enlarge the location of your tent, let the curtains of your dwelling be stretched wide, and don't hold back. Lengthen your cords; strengthen your stakes." Isaiah 54:2
When we launched our 2020 Vision, we recognized that we could not "lengthen our cords" by increasing our outreach without simultaneously "strengthening our stakes" by focusing on existing campuses.
To strengthen our stakes, we resturctured for multisite ministry, began a new marriage ministry, hired an executive pastor and filled the campus pastor positions at every campus. We also added amazing student and children's ministry staff members at every campus.
