Imagine a city where churches are connected through a web of awareness, community, and collaboration — that reaches into the city and out to the world. Imagine hundreds of churches joining forces in mission — churches pursuing unity, but not just for unity’s sake…unity for the purpose of mission.
This is what Jesus was praying for in John 17:23 — that the followers of Jesus would be in such complete unity that the world would know that God the Father sent Jesus, and that the Father loves the other people in the world like He loves Jesus.
The Sending Project is blessed to have more than 300 KC metro area churches in its network! This is a growing network of churches that is ethnically, denominationally, socio-economically, and geographically diverse.
Unity in the midst of diversity is a key value of this network. We envision the citywide Church of Kansas City — one church, with many congregations.
We are so thankful for the hundreds of pastors and church leaders we are journeying with to see God’s Kingdom advance in our city!
Within this vast network of KC metro area churches, The Sending Alliance finds its place — The Sending Alliance is simply a more formal way for a church to connect with The Sending Project. No membership fee, no written agreement…but agreement with The Sending Alliance Covenant is required.
Pastors and church leaders, by joining The Sending Alliance you and your church are agreeing to a very basic but important covenant. It is not a commitment to a certain mission program…it is the commitment to go on a journey together…a commitment to growing in missional awareness, community, and collaboration with other pastors, church leaders, and churches.
