The Fellowship Tree
What is The Fellowship Tree? It is a church network system for those us of us who don't fit into the program driven, mega church goal minded church models.
We are interested in...
- fulfiilling the Great Commission and will leave the numbers up to God
- a relational church system that celebrates the ups and down of being real communities
- creating enviroments where people can be themselves and we choose to love each other
- spurring each other on towards holiness in Jesus Christ
This is not the same as "I'm OK, You're OK." We stirve to fulfill Paul's teaching in Ephesians 4:15 when he says "speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Him who is the Head, that is, Christ." We will not neglete the Word and at the same time, not use it as a weapon against those searching for the truth.
So to wrap up, we are the "Average Joe's". We don't write best selling books, we don't have thousands of people following us on Twitter, and we don't profess to have it all figured out. We are a group who are a few more miles down the road than you may be as a church planter or someone leading a change of vision to relational ministry. We offer fellowship, coaching, accountablity, comfort, and partnership.
One of our favorite things to do is just get together to encourage and counsel each other as church leaders. One thing we have found is it can be hard to be out there on your own. It can bring new life into the mission field to have others to pray with, talk with, and laugh or share struggles with. We'd love to have you be part of this with us.
Take a peek around the web-site and a get a feel for who we are and, if you feel so led, send us an e-mail and let's talk some more.
