A Validation Team approves all projects in order to ensure that they are consistent with the vision and values of our network of churches.
In evaluating a prospective project, the team loosely uses these criteria:
Four Types of Validated Projects
New Worshiping Communities
The hope is to establish a self-sustaining community of faith.
The hope is to establish a new way of creating a faithful community that will not necessarily lead to a chartered congregation.
The hope is to offer a new ministry based on a perceived need in the community or to join an existing ministry in a new way.
The hope is to support para-church organizations doing new ministry.
