The Antioch Process

"Clarifying Our Calling"

“Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a lifelong friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them." Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.”

Acts 13:1-3

Important Updates

As the Antioch Process Continues, we will provide important updates to you. Look for those updates here.

MISSION CLARITY

We want clarity from God about what we as a church and individuals should be doing with our time, treasure, and talents; we want mission clarity so we can be both faithful to and fruitful in what God is calling us to, or so that we can maximally glorify God and make disciples of Jesus. In order to determine our Mission Clarity, Calvary must first go through a process of discerning its context, congregation, and convictions. Listen to Pastor Todd's sermon that explains the Antioch Process.

CONTEXT

What are the unique challenges and opportunities of our ministry context (i.e., our community, our city, our world)?

CONGREGATION

CONVICTIONS

What are the biblical convictions and burning passions that animate our congregation's, staffs', and elders' hearts? What drives them and gets them out of bed in the morning?

CALLING

Mission clarity comes from a deep sense of our church's unique endowment of grace, or Spirit-given gifting. It comes from a rich understanding of what God has equipped us as a church to do. It will be in the space that Calvary's sense of its own context, congregation, and convictions overlap that our calling will be discovered and established.
