TransFORM - a missional community formation network

About

Vision
TransFORM is an international, trans-denominational missional community formation network:
  • international — primarily focusing on the United States context, where the majority of our members/partners live and work, but intentionally involving international partners, as well
  • trans-denominational — working across denominational lines, in partnership with existing denominations, as well as with independent non-denominational groups
  • missional — participating with God in God’s holistic mission to restore all of creation
  • formational — contributing to the formation of vibrant communities of practice that in turn contribute to the formation of robust disciples of Jesus Christ
Purpose
The purpose of TransFORM is to bring together men and women who are on the verge of starting new communities (i.e., community catalysts) or are already cultivating new communities and to give them the encouragement and resources they need to get started and be sustainable:
  • by providing training in missional community development, practical start-up issues, and theological engagement
  • by connecting community catalysts with potential support structures
  • by helping community catalysts negotiate complicated and challenging support structure relationships and hurdles
  • to link community catalysts with mentors/spiritual directors
Goals
  • Organize regional gatherings to bring together missional practitioners with those interested in forming new missional communities
  • Partner with denominations/networks/groups to put on these regional gatherings and provide other resources and connections for community catalysts
  • Develop other resources to encourage missional community formation
  • Build and sustain momentum, share best practices and other learnings, provide mutual encouragement and exchange of ideas, and develop emerging leaders
