MONTHLY MINISTRY DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” – Hebrews 10:23-25

In a ministry field of BIG changes, we have learned that consistency, connection, collaboration, and companionship are essential for moving forward in ministry together in love and good works.

All In Community puts into practice the Hebrews writer’s principles for growing stronger through adversity.  As such, we offer monthly environments designed for mutual discipleship, equipping for good works, encouraging engagement and restorative relational healing.  Each environment harnesses collective compassion, wisdom, gifts and innovation from the group gathered online. As we bring hope and healing in the midst of people’s harmful circumstances, we all need consistent infusions of hope, connection and collaboration. So, mark your calendar and plan to participate in the following monthly offerings.
