The New Church/Ministries Team (NCMT) supports new and affiliating worshiping communities. We especially seek to partner with worshiping communities doing and being church in bold and creative ways and a church which reflects the diversity and wholeness of God’s kindom. We recognize each context is unique and that practices and/or structures will adapted to the context. The process from an idea to planning, to sharing a vision, to gathering folks together, to finding patterns and practices authentic to a particular context will be a journey with twists and turns. We will walk with you. Contact Jeff Zimmerman, Minister for New Church/Ministry, to share your dream of how followers of Jesus might gather and be community.
If your congregation would like to learn more about how you or your congregation can support the New Church/Ministries in the IL-WI region please contact Jeff Zimmerman.
