It is no secret that we love our city, and we love Jesus, and we love His church. When that all comes together the result is a passion to see the city of Atlanta transformed through a saturation of the Gospel. Our vision for what is to happen in the city is so much larger than Tapestry, it's about Jesus. We want to see churches reach their neighbors with the Gospel and we don't care if they are affiliated with Tapestry or any of our partners or not. We just want to see the Gospel spread!
We believe that it will take many many church planters to be effective in reaching the city of Atlanta
We believe that it will take many more partners to come alongside of the church planters so that they are able to reach their neighbors
To kick off this work we are hosting a Vision Tour throughout Atlanta in August 13th. There are three main targeted audiences for this Vision Tour:
- Potential Church Partners: It is our belief that churches plant churches, and the natural flow from that is that churches should be supporting church plants. Living in the city is incredibly expensive and the ability for the church planter to persist in their work depends on partners supporting him, including with financial gifts. Participating on the Plant Atlanta 16 Vision Tour doesn't mean that you are promising large sums of money to a church planter, in fact it doesn't mean that you are promising to give at all. We want as many churches as possible from around the area to come and be part of the Vision Tour- to see the need for church plants, and to see the need for churches to support the church plants.
- Church Planters: If you are currently planting a church in or around the city of Atlanta we would love for you to participate in the Vision Tour. We will coordinate bringing potential partners to your neighborhood so that you can share your vision and your culture with churches.
- Prayer Partners: Because the battle that is being waged in Atlanta (and around the globe) is not a physical battle, but a spiritual one (Ephesians 6), we recognize the need to fight using spiritual means. We want to see WMU groups (and other similar groups) partner with a specific church planter to provide ongoing communication and a relationship focused on praying for the needs of the specific church plant. We would love for your group to join us for PlantATL where you can meet a church planter, see their neighborhood up close and personal, as well as prayer walk/drive neighborhoods in the city.
- Potential Church Planters: Do you feel like God is calling you to plant a church in Atlanta? We'd love for you to participate on the Vision Tour so that you have an opportunity to see some of the different neighborhoods in Atlanta, see some of the different church plants (as well as the different styles and approaches for the plants).
