What We Believe

No model to follow—only a community who understand where you are and care deeply about where you’re headed.

With all of the information, strategies, and models out there, it’s easy for church planters and pastors to lose direction or feel like you need to do things the same way others are in hopes for similar outcomes. But people are different, and context matters.

CULTURAL
VALUES

We believe the following values represent the kind of culture we need to embody to execute our purpose in planting churches and strengthening leaders.

  • Gospel Integrity

    We ensure the gospel is the theological center for our leadership, preaching, and churches.

  • Relational Connection

    We provide intentional opportunities for church leaders to build deep and lasting friendships.

  • Intentional Care

    We provide supplemental care and crisis intervention for pastors and church leaders.

  • Deliberate Collaboration

    We engage church leaders in the development of the network with church planting, leadership training, and pastoral care.

  • Contextual Application

    We create models and methods for church planting and training that scale and adjust to context and culture.

  • Healthy Plurality

    We promote team leadership as a matter of conviction, and we provide tools that equip elder teams to evaluate themselves and grow in health.

  • Kingdom Focus

    We actively serve, learn from, and partner with ministries outside ourselves because our heart is for gospel expansion.

GCC Church Attributes

Each distinctive is good by itself, but together has mission.

If the cultural values represent who we are called to be, the following 6 attributes reflect the kind of churches GCC is seeking to plant and build.
