Vision: We long to see everyone that walks through the doors of Perimeter Church experience a true sense of belonging and that they truly feel welcomed, wanted, noticed, and needed.
Purpose: Belong Ministries exists to facilitate environments where people feel welcome, wanted, noticed, and needed.
Mission: Equipping God’s people to use God’s gifts for God’s glory.
"Who We Are" Values: We are a people radically dependent on God to do what only He can do by prayer and appropriating the power of the Holy Spirit so that all feel welcomed, wanted, noticed, and needed.
You all are the front door of welcoming people into your city! You are the concierge—or first touch, or front door (however you might want to think of it)— to help people connect to the life of Perimeter through connect groups, discipleship groups, and even on-campus resources when needed. You are an extension of Belong Ministries.
You also might have a role to lead (or support) welcome events in the cities, as your team decides. Your City Leadership team will help nuance what the needs are for your city, as well as your capacity to help.
Want to know what a Community Group should look like? Please see the Community Groups Host guide attached below. The bottom line is: all Community Groups should have a "spiritual edge" mission. The goal is for all Community Groups to have the ultimate goal of bringing people into the body of Christ, with some intentional spiritual touchpoints. The social activity—whatever it is—is the means to the end, not the goal.
