What We Do
Our name was selected with care and intentionality. We believe our role to be that of a “nexus” (the point where
linkage or connection occurs.) We are the connecting place where church planting leaders and potential partners make
acquaintances. Our goal is to partner with you, the church-planting leader, helping you launch new faith communities
that will impact your context.
Who actually starts the churches? We don’t. Church planting couples do! What Nexus does is provide the best possible
care for the church-planting couples and their teams who are out there busting it to launch new faith communities! Our
specific task is Nurturing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today! Our task is to come alongside you to help you succeed.
Leader Care involves four crucial elements:
- Coaching focuses on your “project” and its attendant goals and objectives. Your coach will guide you into
the “the art” of church planting.
- Mentoring focuses on you as a “person”, as well as your “family.” The mentors are interested in helping you
foster “the heart” for ministry.
- Training grounds you in a cognitive understanding of entrepreneurial processes as well as the dynamics of
healthy faith communities. Training grounds you in the rapidly changing field of church planting “wisdom.”
- Community is the nurturing context in which you find close companions along the way. In a community,
you discover “the personal touch” that is needed as God engages you in “spiritual formation.”
We think the Kingdom is served best when each region is resourced and released to pursue God’s calling in their own
locale… in voluntary partnership with others. Our focus is on starting churches and helping others do the same in their
own regions. So that puts us in not just the “church planting” business – we’re also in the network launching
and nurturing business. Wherever possible we partner with pre-existing networks and provide needed structure and
systems. When those pre-existing networks are not available we launch and nurture new regional networks that are
independent of Nexus.
