Definition of a new worshiping community

Here is our newest definition of what we believe a new worshiping community is.  It is based on numerous conversations with ministry colleagues in evangelism and church growth, theology, worship, and education, and racial ethnic ministries.  We have also incorporated comments from GAMC members and mid-council leaders.   Our hope for this definition is that it will both provide clarity and inspiration for this 1001 new worshiping communities movement.
