INFLUENCING and REPRODUCING  Ongoing

Long term, we want to see a vibrant church with a strong faith and work initiative, a deep love for Boulder that flows out into an artist in residence program, and a disciple making organization that sends out other ministers and artists to do work in the West.  With a cadre of other like minded churches, we are currently drawing up blue prints for a Western Church Planting Training Center to seed areas of cultural influence with Gospel Christianity.
