God is always at work.
He calls churches to follow Him into their communities to share Christ’s transformational love with each and every person. Cities and neighbourhoods should be impacted and blessed through the social action and thoughtful, cultural engagement of local Christians.
NewGround partners with churches, offering coaching and resources to help identify and establish practical, tangible, and sustainable community ministries.
Together, we break new missional ground, nurturing Spirit-led ideas into healthy ministries that bear everlasting fruit.
It’s time to roll up our sleeves and join Him.
