GOALS FOR 2011 - NCC Kingstowne ENGAGE
Looking ahead to 2011...
“As God continues to pour out His blessings and as He continues to give us favor within the Kingstowne area and the surrounding communities, I want us to be intentional about ENGAGING by taking risks in 2011.” -Pastor Chris Jarrell
Sunday Morning Worship Experience - (Genesis Question #4: How are people experiencing Sunday mornings?) Are they fully connected to what is happening? Fully involved in service – I want people to be fully involved and ENGAGED in our Sunday morning worship experience and not just be a casual observer. I want to see people respond to what is happening during our services…it’s more than just coming to be comfortable, it’s that they will truly experience what God is doing.
Ministries - (Genesis Question #2: Are we intentional about each person stepping out and plugging into ministries to use their gifts and talents for God’s purposes within the NCC Sunday morning worship experience?) Get people to actively commit to being involved in our Sunday morning ministries. I want people to ENGAGE by using their gifts and talents to bless others. My hope is to get at least 5 new people added and committed to all of our ministries at Kingstowne by the end of 2011 and that new ministries will start in 2011.
Small Groups - (Genesis Question 3: How are we growing as disciples and as a community?) Developing more leaders, so we can continue to provide more small group opportunities in the Kingstowne area. I want us to have 15-20 Small Group Opportunities by the end of 2011. It is my prayer and hope that people get ENGAGED in discipleship and in the lives of others.
Outreaches - (Genesis Question 4: Are we being noticed so we can make God’s name known and bring His fame in what we do?) Continue to push with outreaches, developing new opportunities and continue to make current outreaches BIGGER and BETTER. We want to have a GREATER impact in our community. I want the Kingstowne location to be ENGAGED in a greater capacity in our community.
Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
Going ALL IN:
PLAYING IT SAFE IS RISKY: As we seek to ENGAGE at NCC Kingstowne, I want us to grab hold of this core value and run with. As we look back on all of our wins and as we move forward to 2011 let us begin taking some greater risks.
Let’s be strategic and give everyone an opportunity to serve here at NCC Kingstowne. Let’s help others raise their level of risk by inviting them to be a part of a team.
This is where discipleship happens. Take a risk and lead a group. Take a risk and join a group. Risk taking is what cultivates community. Our level of growth as a location will come from our level of growth as in small groups at NCC Kingstowne.
Let’s raise our level of risk and get involved with our community on the ground level.

Stay United/Stay a Family:
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called— one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesian 4:1-6
