nitrogen is chasing a vision, mission, and strategy to see a nitrogen presence initiated in 10 cities by 2020 and 25 cities by 2040. A nitrogen presence = 1. A developing network center 2. engaging in urban communities 3. purposed on multiplying churches.
Every movement starts with a pocket of white-hot faith! A network center is that pocket. Initiated by 5-7 leaders committing to starting a movement of disciple-making, leader-raising, and church-multiplying in the urban context.
The urban context is crying out for a gospel of justice and reconciliation. Christian community development is a vision and philosophy of a whole gospel, for the whole person, for the good of the whole of society. The whole gospel emphasizes evangelism and discipleship, social action, economic development, and justice. The heart of engagement is an urban discipleship and ministry training journey to inspire, equip, and empower the church in the urban context.
Churches planting and multiplying churches is the goal. A planting and multiplying church is a church that takes responsibility for: 1. the raising-up of planters, pastors, and leaders through the process of recruiting, assessing, coaching, training, and networking; 2. the identifying of sites, cities, and communities; and 3. the empowering of the resources prayer, renewal, and capital ... to see a movement rise.
