Are you struggling to attract people from outside the Church?


Do you see the same faces at all your events?


Do you crave daily conversation with the unchurched and seeking? 


WE HELP CHURCHES, SCHOOLS, AND OTHER MINISTRIES BUILD PLACES OF CONNECTION WITH THE UNCHURCHED, EARN THE RIGHT TO BE HEARD, AND CREATE REAL RELATIONSHIP IN COMMUNITY.

  • 1. We Get to know you.

    Whether you are a Church, school, or campus ministry, we take the time to really get to know your community, your desires, and your vision. We come away with a deep understanding of the history, location, potential projects spaces, and particular goods expressed by your faith community. It is our goal as experienced observors to see the unique strengths and potential in your project, along with the hurdles and challenges, trusting that you are in the right place at the right time by Providence. These true goods expressed in your community form the basis of any potential connection. 

  • 2. We Get to know the people you Want to Reach. 

    Next, we work hard to understand the community you are trying to reach. Whether it's hipster college kids, young working families in your Church's neighborhood, the urban poor struggling in your area, or the suburban 'frozen chosen' in the pews, we map their culture, desires, and needs, looking for true goods still loved by them and particular desires or hungers that could be filled through you.  We come away with a very clear understanding of the people that God wants to reach through you with an eye toward fostering a way to connect you to them. 

  • 3. We Identity common goods as areas of connection.

    All this research is largely for one reason- to find potential points of connection between you and those you are trying to reach. We create a matrix of all the common goods and felt desires that could form a point of interface between you. We then develop strategies for you to serve them in these areas of commonality, to earn the right to be heard, and organically, over time, enter into relationship in community. This is the normal context for any real evangelization or discipleship. In this type of relationship, they can begin to recognize the objects of their desire in some of the goods they had written off or been ignorant of until seen in the light of relationship. Your job is to love them in a way they can understand and live with a deeply awakened desire in front of them. In other words, you feed them and stoke their hunger for more. 

  • 4. We help you build a home for connection to happen. 

    Finally, you must build a context for this interaction to happen, frequently and consistently, over time. This usually takes the form of a place. Much can be done with an event or even an event series, but this mode of engagement really needs near daily interaction. For this reason, we specialize in hospitality spaces like cafes, coffeehouses, wine bars, etc. This level of investment is not insignificant, but consistently pays dividends in lives changed on both sides of the encounter. Whether we work with local professionals near you or our network of strategic partners, we can find a home for your project, design it, and direct it to completion, training your staff, making sure it has a sucessful launch, and providing support as it grows.
