Jesus Cares Partnering Churches

In order to maximize the fruit of the Jesus Cares Campaign in your community, Groundwire is looking to partner with Kingdom-minded churches that are geographically and demographically strategic and can help in connecting people impacted by the campaign with a body of believers.

The goal is to create a warm hand-off to an intentional discipleship relationship even before they step foot into the church. Effective follow-up is going to be facilitated by churches, but executed by individuals.

Characters of a Jesus Cares Church

Not all churches are going to be perfect partners for the Jesus Cares Campaign, but the ones that are will exhibit the following characteristics.

  • Biblical in their approach and teaching.
  • Relevant without compromising biblical standards/convictions.
  • Not shocked or judgmental at fringe appearance.
  • Effective with Millennials. (Culture/Community)
  • Embrace discipleship responsibilities with one-on-one relationships.
  • A culture of outreach and missions.
