THESE ARE THE WAYS WE “MEASURE” SUCCESS AT THE GROVE
Jesus told several parables about a master going away, but leaving stewards, or managers, in charge of his estate (Matthew 25.14-30; Luke 19.11-27). We believe that God has put all Christians as stewards over his "estate." In doing so, when we think of ourselves as faithful stewards, we believe God is calling us to wisely manage our 4T’s (time, talent, treasure, and truth) for His glory. While we can get caught up in how much fruit we are bearing, what matters most in our stewardship is that we faithfully put to use whatever God has entrusted to us in order to help bring His kingdom to earth and build His church.
We are encouraging all people to follow Jesus in all of life. Because of this, we are equipping all followers of Jesus that every second of every minute belongs to our Lord Jesus. As such, we regularly encourage people to give their “4T’s” away through serving on Sunday mornings, in Neighborhood Groups, in their Neighborhoods as missionaries, and in other meaningful ways. Below are a list of many ways our family at the grove served in 2018.

Ambassadors represent a country or king in a foreign land. Interestingly, God has told us that we are His Kingdom ambassadors in this world, as messengers of spiritual reconciliation with our Father through Jesus, and relational reconciliation with one another (2 Corinthians 5.16-6.1). Because this is true, we believe that all believers should labor to wave the flag of God's Kingdom, and not our own. As ambassadors, we bring God's Gospel to those that are in a far-away land. Though they are far off, God longs to bring them near
(Colossians 1.21-23; Ephesians 2.13).

We center everything at The Grove around three movements: making disciples, maturing disciples, and multiplying disciples. We are not successful until we multiply both as individuals and corporately (Matthew 28.16-20). It is not enough to simply enjoy one another as Christians. Instead, we must intentionally pursue growing together, so that we can healthily multiply disciples who make disciples to plant churches which plant churches.

“What is God calling The Grove Church to do in 2019? In two simple words, we believe God is calling us to dig deeper, and exercise our faith in deed in action as He calls us to a deeper, more consistent trust in Him. We sense He’s saying to us, “Trust me.” In a culture where we document all of life’s moments on social media for all to see, it is in the small, unseen moments of life where the Spirit of God is calling us deeper. Will we be a people who trust God in the new year,
or will we be a people who trust what we see, what we can measure, what we can attain on our own?”
