Partnering with Project Transformation to host programming for children can help re-anchor your congregation in your neighborhood. Church development that happens in partnership with Project Transformation is multidimensional and interdisciplinary. Through this partnership, site churches are empowered to better cultivate two key traits of discipleship: radical hospitality and active listening. Site churches are trained each year in best practices for leveraging the program by one another and Project Transformation. First and foremost, church members and staff are able to display radical hospitality as they greet children and their families, lead chapel services during programming each week, invite families to worship and plan and attend Family Fun Night events with the young adults. Beyond this, the site church also enters, with more resources, a relationship of active listening in order to better learn and understand the community’s needs and assets.
If your congregation is interested in being a site church, applications are accepted in the fall. Click here to for the application.
The site church application can be helpful for any congregation wanting to deepen its knowledge of and investment in its neighborhood.
