A growing, abiding relationship with Jesus is vital to all aspects of spiritual health. Similarly, healthy service prioritizes serving and being served in the inner circle. From a healthy inner circle, the believer’s service flows to the extended and missional circles, comprising a balanced frame of churchwide service.
Inner Circle - Healthy service prioritizes serving and being served in the inner circle among family, life group and close friends.
Extended Circle - In balance with a healthy inner circle, believers pursue ministry opportunities and use our gifts to serve our church family.
Missional Circle - Jesus followers serve with kindness and compassion, meeting needs and faithfully sharing the love of the Father.
Serving the Inner Circle: My Family, Close Friends, and Life Group
Healthy service prioritizes relationships: 1) our abiding relationship with Christ, and, 2) serving and being served by our inner circle of family, close friends and life group. A healthy inner circle provides a foundation for balanced church and missional service, modeling the examples of Christ and the early New Testament church in serving one another.
