Next Steps

We believe growing people change. Wherever you are in life, whatever is going on, you will always have a next step to take as you grow.

We boil down the next steps you can take into three words:

Gather, Engage and Multiply. 

Why

Why do we care about your next step?  Because our mission is to love people into a REAL relationship with Jesus Christ!

Gather

Deuteronomy 31:12-13

We invite others to join us for weekend services, Men’s Ministry, Women’s Ministry, Welcome Gatherings and Seminars to introduce them to the Church Family. This is the front door; our neighbor has agreed to come for dinner. This is high invitation and low challenge, which is where we want to begin but not where we want to end.

Engage

Hebrews 10:24-25

We invite others to join us by engaging membership, being baptized, joining a huddle and serving. This is high invitation and high challenge. People will begin to take ownership of Vanguard as their church family. They will take ownership of their personal walk with Jesus. And, as an out pouring of that relationship with Jesus they will begin serving.

Multiply

2 Timothy 2:1-2

We invite Family Members to join us in leading Ministries, Huddles, Teaching, Eldership and Planting Churches to love others into REAL relationship with Jesus. The final step in Discipleship fulfills the great commission. Jesus is multiplied in others.

Ready to find out more about how you can take your next step?  We would love to hear from you!
