About Us

OUR MISSION

We believe God wants RiverTree Jackson to be a people who are so filled with God’s Spirit that He overflows like a river into the streets of our neighborhoods and our cities, bringing new life throughout Jackson Township and its neighboring communities. 

Our God Dream is to send a missionary to every street and a missional community to every neighborhood so that where our people reside, everything will live.

OUR STRATEGY

Sharing the new life that is available through Jesus with our community.

God wants to bring new life into this darkness and decay by flooding our neighborhoods with His life-giving presence.

We will join God on His mission to see marriages flourish, families, enjoying meaningful time together, neighborhoods filled with friendship, and lives filled with the salvation, hope, and meaning only Christ can bring.

Together, we will be like river trees that bring life (Ezekiel 47, Revelation 22) and so faithfully present in our places of belonging that everything around us will live.

 

OUR GOD DREAM

In 2017, RiverTree Jackson, launched a new vision, a GOD DREAM, to bring new life to our community with a goal to have a missionary on every street and a missional community in every neighborhood.

 

90-DAY INITIATIVES

You’ll hear about these regularly during weekend services and events. These smaller goals will help focus our collective efforts over the next year to encounter the spirit, equip for new life, enlist for saturation, and embrace the GOD DREAM.

Bless.Eat.Pray.50K.

OUR FIRST GOAL

To achieve this goal, we will help you live as a missionary right in your own neighborhood, network or workplace.

Enlist and resource 1,000 people to bless, eat or pray intentionally with those God has placed around them resulting in 50,000 INTENTIONAL ACTS of being on mission in the community.

 

Intentional Discipleship Relataionships

OUR SECOND GOAL

An Intentional Discipleship Relationship (IDR) consists of 2-8 people who meet regularly to DISCOVER THE WAY of Jesus and follow it together.

We are committed to providing training opportunities for you to learn how this toolkit is beneficial in developing IDRs. Our goal is to reach 500 people whoa re actively engaged in IDRs this year!

Contact Drew for more info about learning to use this toolkit resource!

ENCOUNTER THE SPIRIT

We will equip hundreds of people to regularly encounter the Holy Spirit by creating more space for responsiveness to the Spirit at our worship gatherings and by building a prayer team of 75 people that will equip others to hear the Spirit’s voice.

EQUIP FOR NEW LIFE

We will help people experience new life through Jesus by equipping 500 people to establish intentional discipleship relationships (IDRs) that have a uniquely missional approach. We will specifically promote new life in the four areas of decay highlighted in the God Dream by providing key events and resources for each area.

ENLIST FOR SATURATION

We will saturate our neighborhoods with new life in Jesus by sending 320 individuals to be missionaries to their streets and by launching 20 neighborhood GoCommunities in Jackson Township, as well as in other communities where God opens a door. We will create a leadership pipeline for these initiatives by training 150 apprentice leaders to live on mission with God to make disciples of Jesus.

EMBRACE THE DREAM

We will ensure every person and every ministry embraces the God Dream and can articulate their part within it by overhauling our connections processes, strategically restructuring or redirecting every ministry area to align to the Dream, and by building the Dream into all of our communications processes.
