A vision for discipleship, mission, and expansion in 2022

WHAT IS

The Deep & Wide initiative is a vision for discipleship, mission, and expansion in 2022. We’re calling it Deep & Wide because deep discipleship and wide mission are the pedals on our bike, and in this season we want every person to make a fresh commitment to pumping them. On the personal front that will take many forms. On the church front, that will mean securing 475 Westfield Road as our new church home.

While gaining a permanent gathering space is central to this initiative, it’s not the end goal. The end goal is lives changed by the gospel. We believe this building will facilitate deeper discipleship and wider mission by enabling us to significantly increase our sending, serving, shepherding, and seating capacity.
