Teams are where our vision is put into action. They are grouped as either a sector we are engaged in or a cause we believe in. Let us know if you would like more information about a current team or be informed when one that matches your field or passions is formed.
By Sector- every field reflecting kingdom values
As a leader, you shape the business, its culture, the development of its people, its reputation, and what it gives back. Your influence has far-reaching impact!
I AM for Philly is a monthly breakfast where marketplace leaders unite to share God stories, pray for God's provision and direction, and initiate/engage in hope-instilling work throughout Philadelphia.
There is so much happening inside the walls of a church, that many pastors do not even know where to start to get to know other pastors in their neighborhood or those outside of their natural affinity networks. Philadelphia Gospel Movement acts to be both a network of networks as well as a neutral convener to bring church leaders together in a neighborhood and the whole city across racial and denominational lines.
As pastors come and pray together, opportunities open up for their congregations to link arms in service.
By area of service- Addressing the issues that break God’s heart
Listening the School District and Mayor, we heard that their top elementary priority is to have every child reading at grade level by 4th grade (currently 42%). Observing that most volunteers are not available until school and after-school programing is over, we started a community dinner and early literacy program, Family Homework Night. The pilot in Brewerytown is going great and we hope to expand across the city in the Spring.
The Education Team has not only started this new initiative, but connects churches to organizations and individuals to start or expand a school partnership. Ultimately we hope this leads to forming a network of churches engaged in school partnerships, learning from each other.
