This wiki encyclopedia/knowledgebase is for collaboratively growing the global cityreaching movement... together... city by city... neighborhood by neighborhood. In other words, it's the Great Commission... working together to ensure every man, woman and child in our communities get an optimal opportunity to know & enjoy Jesus Christ as Lord.  Loving our neighbors as ourselves includes inviting them to enjoy being part of His family/team. The family of God serves as 'salt & light' to our communities... collectively & concertedly being participating agents of His justice & mercy in the here & now. This wiki expedites connecting, discovering & sharing what each of our cityreaching movements look like (at their current status). We trust it will raise the big questions... and attempt to answer them... and press some of those answers into action.

 

Some of the big questions...

What does CityReaching look like in YOUR city? Your neighborhood? Who's really working together? How effective is the Great Commission in your community? What's your cityreaching plan? How can we know whether we're really DOING IT or not? How can we measure progress? How can we encourage one another along the way, and hold each other accountable for progress? continue to 'Big Questions'

Tim, we moved it... to a place with a better fit. And we added it to the @IndyTimeline and tweeted/retweeted it.

Since this particular page of the CityReaching wiki-knowledgebase is our Front Page, we really only want to MENTION new concepts/pages -- say with a one-liner & link. Thus my allusion above to the @IndyTimeline concept for cities to potentially mimic... and then used your event-link as the Example. Hope that's ok.
