Mission & Ministry Blueprint 2017-2020

Of the three core objectives of CrossRoads Journey, the first is: “To enhance and expand our outreach in the Hillsboro area.”  Fleshed out below is a 4D Model giving some specifics of what that would look like.  We reflect Jesus when we engage in what is primary in Jesus’ heart and mission: “to seek and to save the lost.”  When fishermen are out fishin’, we experience the deep joy of being in God’s will. As we live missionally, lives of individuals and families in the community are touched. Some transformed. We are transformed.  God is glorified.

Trinity’s new 4D Outreach Paradigm – Mission and Ministry Blueprint

Living the Gospel-in-Life | Serving
Our Community and Neighbors
Q: As we build upon Trinity’s unique Gospel DNA,
what creative new ways of living out the Gospel
will touch the lives of non-churched adults, youth and children in Hillsboro? What community-centered
ministries would our neighbors miss if we weren’t here?

designed to attract non-churched kids.

Q: What are ways we can catch the eye of
our community and leapfrog Trinity’s image
forward into the 21st century?

Q: How can exciting events taking place each month
at Trinity be made known in the community
so our non-Christians and unchurched neighbors
will be curious and attracted to “come and see”
what God is doing in our midst?
