After years of building church networks focused on mission collaboration, one lesson that was clearly learned is that church collaboration is very messy! To address this issue, in 2018, FORCLT launched a citywide missional engagement platform to facilitate collaborative mission between churches, nonprofits, schools and other agencies. Branded as an extension of each connected organization, the platform allows members to see mission opportunities and needs, giving them immediate access to engage that need.
The platform streamlines the process for nonprofits, allowing them to share a need with all their church partners, and fosters unity by providing a way for churches to serve side-by-side for the good of the city.
The Platform Network is made up of representatives of each of the organizations (churches, nonprofits, schools, etc.) that are on the FORCLT platform. To connect your church or organization to the platform, and become part of the Platform Network, join the Platform at the button above. Both this network and platform allow us to to operationalize the relational unity that was growing throughout the city.
