WHAT WE SEE...
CHANGING LIVES THROUGH
We live in a nation where nearly half of the population feels excluded, undervalued, and alone. Meaningful relationships with depth and sincerity seem elusive. Jesus found broken and hurting people and shared his compassionate message of hope through personal relationships. We believe this culture can be healed through meaningful life-changing relationships.
WHAT WE BELIEVE...
God is leading our family at San Jose to change lives through Jesus-centered relationships. (1) We will intentionally engage with friends, neighbors, and community organizations to reach out to those who feel alone. (2) We will raise up hundreds of guides who will take thousands of people on a life-changing journey through relationally-charged, disciple-making groups. Within the next ten years (3) we will become a church that launches church-planting teams, in Jacksonville, with the tools to make and mature disciples.
Imagine the thrill of watching lives renewed as God stirs within us a passion to influence generation after generation to love and follow Jesus.
HOW WILL SAN JOSE MEET NEEDS OF THE LONELY?
A Partnership with San Jose and Young Lives.
Young Lives, different than young life, is committed to introducing teen moms to Christ and help them grow in their faith through meaningful relationships. You can imagine teen moms feel so alone. They are unlike their teenaged friends because they are raising a child. They are unlike many moms, because they are teens. We want to meet the needs of these teen moms with meaningful transformative relationships.
Intentionally create ministries within San Jose as well as partnerships with community organizations to foster meaningful transformative relationships.
THIS YEAR: Serve as the creative genius for San Jose’s various small groups to meet the needs of the lonely and isolated.
Foster ministries and partnerships where it is acceptable and natural to have relationships that center around Jesus.
NEXT YEAR: Create larger projects that align with our vision
