Critical to achieving our goal of 100 healthy churches in a generation is the establishment of a culture of leadership development that grows and enables leaders for our churches, affiliated groups and the broader community.
Those who lead will be godly men and women of influence who increasingly exemplify loving God comprehensively and loving others as they love themselves (Mark 12:30-31).
No matter how capable a church is, it is an ongoing journey to remain a thriving, healthy community. Together we desire to see churches continually revitalised.
We believe healthy churches will be places where:
- Communities replicate faith-transforming disciples
- Leaders are identified, nurtured, equipped and released
- Mission shapes all parts of the community
- The wider community and culture is impacted positively for Jesus.
The GEN1K goal calls every southern Sydney member church to be linked to a church planting project in some way, either directly or indirectly. Church planting is exciting, risky, challenging and rewarding as we see God work in new ways in the lives of people.
