Join in God's mission.

“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. . .”

Dwelling in Luke 10:1-12 since 1991.

We help people discover what God is up to in their everyday lives and the lives of the neighbors around them and invite them to join in!

Church Innovations Institute partners with local Christian communities around the world to design resources that help people discover their future in God’s mission. We call this work, Partnership for Missional Church.

Partnership for Missional Church (PMC)

What exactly is PMC? A 3-year spiritual journey with 6 to 12 other congregations (cluster) to discern what God is up to in their location.

How can I find out more? The introductory video (at right) still hits the high notes. . .and features partners from South Africa.

Is it possible to test things out?
Yes! Key features of the PMC process can be customized to the specific needs and timelines of your congregation (e.g., weekend workshops on the missional practices of Dwelling in the Word or Spiritual Discernment).

Who can I talk to?
For details on upcoming (PMC)lusters or to learn how this process might be adapted for your context, contact Pastor Jeff Nehrbass at jnehrbass@churchinnovations.org.
