Vision & Mission

Our Vision
To advance the kingdom of God by starting God glorifying, cross-centered, gospel focused, biblically sound, culturally relevant, impactful, reproducing churches in our city, state and beyond to help as many people as possible become worshipers of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission
Recruit, train and coach existing and future pastors and church leaders in theology, preaching, church business, leadership and ministry with prayer and diligence to the glory of God, keeping the focus on Christ and not ourselves

Our God-sized Goal
Simply put, we would like to see the efforts of Mission1618 result in us praying, planning, recruiting, training, and coaching new churches toward the starting of 100 new churches in 10 years (by 2019) worldwide. To accomplish this we are setting the following goals: The starting of one new church every year for 10 years from Hope Community Church, Minneapolis (10 new churches)
Each of these churches would start at least one new church within 5 years of their first public launch, with the first five planting two. (15 new churches)
Recruiting and adopting 25 like-minded church planters who have either just begun or are soon to begin their church plants. In the next ten years, they would each plant at least their church as well as one more. (50 new churches)
Each of these churches would plant at least one church before 2019. (25 new churches) And, as the movement gains the power and wind of more of the Spirit of God, who knows what God will do for his glory and our joy!
