For those of you new to Forge America, we as an organization, long to see the reign of God revealed in the everyday places of life. We hope for justice, love, beauty, reconciliation, celebration, hospitality and all things that reflect the reign of God to be fully revealed. For these things to happen, we must empower and equip the everyday people of God to join Him in His redemptive mission right where they live, work, and play. For this reason, we train men and women locally and contextually (through what we call Forge Hubs) to think and act like one who is on mission, a missionary, in the places they have already been sent. As a result, communities, neighborhoods, workplaces, urban centers, schools, youth sport teams, and other places we frequent will begin to resemble the Kingdom of God and those who may not ever walk through the doors of a church building will be able to smell fragrances of the Kingdom and Jesus, the King.
Here in the Unites States, we have been at this work now for about seven years. In this time we have heard and seen many stories of life change, community transformation, missional communities formed, churches renewed, new initiatives started all as a result of God’s grace and the efforts of Forge. In fact, this spring we are publishing a magazine of stories of everyday people who have been impacted by Forge. We cannot wait to share this resource with you. We believe it will be stories like these, the stories of everyday people courageously joining Jesus that will inspire others to do the same and it will catalyze a movement.
As we look to 2018 we not only want to continue in our current endeavors but we hope to train and equip more men and women who inhabit neighborhoods and networks all across this country. We desperately long for more people to catch a glimpse of the Kingdom and the love of the King. However, we cannot do this apart from the prayers, encouragement, and financial support of others. We need you.
