Key Operating Assumptions of the Vision

  • As a multiplier, the primary job is to be one of the pastoral leaders of NLF, preparing this group of God’s people for works of service and ministry so that Sunday attenders become connected contributors to a rich, meaningful ‘life together’ network of relationships, increasingly fueled and populated by new leaders who are raised up from among high school teens we helped to become followers of Jesus (see Ephesians 4:11-16)
  • The end goal is to see young people thoroughly integrated with a highly connected fellowship of Christians who live out their faith together with generosity for the glory of God in our community
