New Faith Communities (NFC): new places, new ways to reach new people – are vital and exciting ways that the churches of the Central Texas Conference are activating our Wildly Important Goal (WIG) to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Every size church, in every district, in every kind of community has participated in our conference goal of launching 100 New Faith Communities in a three-year span. These NFCs have been and will continue to be a driving force in our now 20 months (and counting!) of growth in the CTC. Later this month, Rev. Mike Ramsdell and church leaders who have played integral roles in launching NFCs in each district will lead a series of workshops (one in each district) on New Faith Communities – what we have learned, what’s working/what’s not the NFC Grant process, and much more.
