OUR GOAL IS:
As this team becomes proficient in these new areas of understanding and practice, they will begin engaging people in our community and the rest of our church family in growth as disciples of Jesus. Our goal is to make this church family one that is flourishing. A flourishing church is vibrantly alive, growing and bearing fruit. Our goal is that every one of us would be flourishing disciples. Our goal is that we would lead many unsaved people into a relationship with God (the first step in disciple-making among the unsaved is evangelism). We aim to constantly increase both the quality and the quantity of disciples in Ozark Mountain Country.

This team can use folks with gifts of administration, knowledge, wisdom, vision and leadership. It would also benefit from anyone who is already safety minded or anyone who has experience in any form of emergency services.
