Our Mission

Here at The Meeting House, we believe that following Jesus is not just thinking good thoughts about God, but actually turning those thoughts into action. The best way to do that is to have some clear goals for our community and move toward them together. Here is a quick summary of what we have been up to:

In our First Mission, we grew as a multi-site church to reach more people with Jesus' message.

  • 5 New sites
  • 50 more home churches
  • Purchased and renovated Oakville Production Site
  • Goal: $6 million
  • Raised: $5.5 million

In our Second Mission, we grew as a compassionate church to reach more people in need, sharing Jesus love.

  • 5 New sites
  • 64 more home churches
  • Invested $3.5 million in local and global compassion
  • Goal: $8 million
  • Raised $7 million

In our New Mission, we want to grow as a community-transforming church to see more people's lives radically changed by Jesus in our church family, in our communities, and around the world.

 

Our Motivation

If we claim to follow Jesus, we should be aware that he gave us some pretty clear instructions about what we should be doing in this world and how we should live.  We have an exciting and challenging job to do in this world but we need to be single-minded about it.

In the Great Commission, Jesus encouraged his followers to go out and start making disciples - not people who only have intellectual knowledge, but who are continuously learning to obey his commands - growing in integrity, serving the poor, living simply, giving generously,  and loving sacrificially.

The Great Commission

"Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted.  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  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,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Matthew 28:16-20, NIV

Our Opportunity

In Luke 12, Jesus concluded one of his stories with: "When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required."  

It's pretty clear we've been given much. We have an amazing opportunity before us and therefore a responsibility to do the most with our time and resources.

The world is now globally linked person to person. We live in one of its most multi-cultural centres. The nations are literally at our doorsteps and fingertips. If we reach our communities we reach our world. Through Jesus, we want to be a transforming community that transforms communities.
