18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

The vision of Missional Community Groups is to connect people in groups for the purpose of growing in faith, loving one another, and serving the church so that we may fulfill the biblical mandate to make and grow disciples. This is done in the context of spiritual formation, community and mission.


A Missional Community Group is a midsized, diverse long-term group of people who are being spiritually formed and transformed by growing as a spiritual family and living on mission together. Members of Missional Community Groups follow Jesus together and demonstrate God’s character to each other and to the world.

Who can belong to a Missional Community Group?

Missional Community Groups are communities that people can belong to before they believe. This means that Missional Community Groups are a reflection of our entire church and are composed of mature Christians, new Christians, and non-Christians. Simply put, we want everyone to be in a Missional Community Group, because that is where both community and mission take place.

WHAT ARE THE CORE VALUES OF A Missional Community Group?

The values that drive Missional Community Groups are UP - IN - OUT. These correspond with Zion’s core values of BELONG - BELIEVE - BECOME. Although they are stated in different orders, they are two ways of saying similar things. Because of God’s act of love to us in the Gospel, Missional Community Groups respond with an upward movement toward God (BELIEVE), an inward movement toward each other (BELONG), and an outward movement toward others to represent Christ to their unique missional context (BECOME).

These core values drive various rhythms that allow the Spirit of God to transform members’ lives and create a mission-centered community.
