Worshiping Communities


We can help you transform your congregation — by forming disciples and developing new followers of Jesus Christ in your worshiping communities. We have resources to help you do this. Our Theology, Formation & Evangelism ministry area offers many programs and resources to suit your needs.

One of the most popular and exciting initiatives is 1001 New Worshiping Communities, a movement within the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to create new ways of being and doing church. Some of these new communities may ultimately turn into “traditional” churches; others do mission and ministry in an entirely new way. Their common purpose is to form new disciples of Jesus Christ by participating in God’s mission that is already happening in their communities and neighborhoods.

Vital Congregations works with pastors, church committees and mid councils by providing training, materials and consultation to help transform congregations and worshiping communities by focusing on forming disciples and planting new congregations.
