- Church plants seeking a meaningful presence in their city
- Missional communities & micro-churches ready to take it to the next level
- Churches seeking to transform their local missions and outreach
- Individuals or organizations
A NEW WAY TO THINK ABOUT LOCAL MISSIONS AND OUTREACH
Serve as a relational accelerator for missional start-ups and founders in your community and city
As a church leader, you know the importance of forming partnerships with community organizations and influencers. By platforming and serving these founders and leaders, you will build relational equity, serve the influencers, and authentically increase the visibility of your community.
Increase engagement with a new vision for community outreach
Host and facilitate innovative and engaging experiences designed to bring 30-50 people together to generate new ideas and build ownership for partner projects. We match our members with non-profit startups, small business ventures, social enterprises, and other creative projects making an impact for the common good.
Grow your community in partnership with founders and influencers
Whether breaking the “150 barrier” or simply looking to get your small group out of the building, authentic growth is not just attendance – but also in engagement and personal growth. Introduce your community to the pressing issues of your city and produce both inward and outward transformation.
Join the action. Contribute to the cultural and economic renewal of your city
Support leaders of projects focused on homelessness and poverty, education and economic development, environmental and food justice, or racial equity. Engage with creative projects, founders, artists, designers, musicians, and filmmakers.
Build leaders and teams who engage your community
Access a simple training framework to equip teams of 5-7 to organize powerful experiences without an overwhelming amount of time and energy. Revolve leadership roles to express gifts or build new skills. Perfect for small groups, outreach teams, church plant launch teams, and missional communities - everyone can play a role in making it happen.
Marketing support to optimize every engagement
People attend events when they hear about it from multiple sources and channels. We help promote each event with the marketing and brand assets you need. We also equip each partner you serve with the tools and resources they need to invite their family and friends.
