At Willowdale Chapel...
Our mission as a church is to love God, love each other, and love the world that Jesus, through his people, is working to restore.
In 2011 we worked through a process to freshly reimagine what that means, and after seven months we crystallized a vision for the next era of our church's life.
In 2012 we began to communicate the vision. We printed our Mission Book. We did a preaching series entitled, "Thy Kingdom Come." We visited small groups and held town hall meetings to hear feedback and answer questions.
Now, in 2013, we are pursuing the vision in earnest. With God's help we plan to finish our church campus, retire our debt, plant new multi-site churches, and start a partner organization to incubate new ventures for the common good in the culture at large. It's a bold vision calling for faith, prayer, and sacrifice-—just like any God-honoring vision should.
Recently we had the privilege of meeting with Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, to hear his thoughts on our vision. Click here to listen to some of his insights.
