Movement Church Next Steps
Movement Church Next Steps
Little children [believers, dear ones], let us not love [merely in theory] with word or with tongue [giving lip service to compassion], but in action and in truth [in practice and in sincerity, because practical acts of love are more than words.]
1 John 3:18 (AMP)
Faith in action is powerful. When Jesus was on earth, He showed us the powerful combination of speaking to the heart while meeting the needs of the body. He was always spiritual and practical. We are fortunate to have many organizations in our community that are meeting the spiritual, practical, and emotional needs of men, women and children.
Over the next five years, our goal is to come alongside 15 organizations whose goal is to effect change in our local community. We will accomplish this by empowering and releasing 1,000 unique volunteers to serve over 130,000 hours through Movement Church and these organizations, also known as our Vision Impact Partners (VIPs). We will also help their missions by providing material and financial support. Our impact partners will help us in our mission to help others know Jesus, help us to love others, and help our community live changed!

Better Together is a non-profit organization that serves families through two programs, Better Families and Better Jobs: Better Families is designed to prevent neglect and abuse before foster care is needed. Their unique model allows parents who have fallen into difficult times to voluntarily place their children in a loving host family for up to a year. Together, volunteers and partners help parents get back on their feet. According to the plan, 100% of the families are reunited and 98% of them stay together and out of the foster care system. Better Jobs trains and equips churches to start an employment ministry and support the Better Jobs program, empowering families to achieve financial independence.

CEF of Southwest Florida partners with churches to train, equip and support the local church as they impact their communities for Christ. The CEF mission is to reach children with the Gospel, disciple them, and connect them to local Bible-believing churches. This is mainly accomplished through the after-school Good News Club® and the summer based 5-Day Club® program.
