THE VISION: As a church TOGETHER, we want to plant 10,000 Gospel seeds in the next 10 years.
A "seed" is the planting of an "experience with Jesus" in the life of an unchurched person through the relational interaction of a Jesus follower. It can involve a personal, hospitality event; the sharing of the gospel; and/or coming to church or a church event through an invite. The key for this 10,000 seeds in 10 years goal: we are looking for "deep plantings" not superficial ones. The planting must involve deeper relational connection. For example, having an unchurched friend to your house for dinner is a deep planting. If you invite someone to your house, but they never come, this is not a deep planting, though it is still good you invited them.
