Churches

Your church is uniquely placed within your community to boldly share Jesus and teach others how to follow Him.

This page explains how your church can be a part of strategically reaching every person in your community in this urgent hour.

What can we do as a local church? 

Make a plan

Reaching your community begins with defining your “All”.

Step 1: Research

What is the population of your area (age, ethnicity, language, etc)? How many households, schools, churches…?

Step 2: Faith Goal

How many people and geographical areas will you adopt, pray for and connect with in your community?

Step 3: Launch Date

Set a date for your church launch. 

Pray+Connect:

Be part of a focused prayer and connection strategy in your area. This will support your congregation in connecting with neighbors and friends and in turn connecting them to Jesus, the Bible and Christian community.

Promote

Support and attend All.America events planned by your local leadership team, including giving verbal and printed information to your congregation. This includes prayer, outreach, fundraising and training events.

Example

How about adopting the area where your church is located? This could be the ZIP Code or a differently defined area that makes sense to your location.
Challenge your congregation to work together until every household in your area is adopted.

Break it down

A large area commitment can be daunting. Breaking it down into manageable chunks allows different groups to take ownership – e.g. the business people take on downtown, the moms’ group commits to the section with the big park – you get the idea.

Work together

Invite other churches in your area to join in.

Set goals – like making sure every school is adopted (and pray for the people in every business/media outlet/place of government/etc.)

Resources

We have put together a range of tools to help you define and reach your All – guides for small groups, churches, local communities; timelines, templates, sermon outlines, partner ministry resources and training…

The Goals of the Pray+Connect launch:

To ensure that your church body has a solid understanding of the heart, vision, and strategy of All.America.

To launch the congregation in downloading and using the All.America app to adopt and pray for their neighbors and those in their circle of influence.

To encourage your congregation to financially support the local initiative and offer specific volunteer opportunities.
