The Vision of Saturate the Sound is to see the local church and ministries embrace their calling to equip every person to be sent to every place, where we live, work, learn and play, so that every man woman and child has a daily encounter with Jesus in word and deed.
Our hope is to see 4000 Gospel Communities on Mission (GCM)** in the Greater Puget Sound so that Gospel Saturation might happen through everyday people on mission in the everyday stuff of life.
In order to see this vision and hope realized, we are calling church and ministry leaders who are committed to Gospel Saturation to regularly gather together in their region in a Saturate the Sound Learning cohort.
THE PURPOSE OF A COHORT IS:
- Prayerfully Seek God Together
- Build Relational Trust
- Grow in Spiritual Vitality Personally
- Develop Healthy Disciple-Making Ministries
- Partner for Gospel Saturation (1:1000 – GCM:Population)
- Raise Up Leaders Who Launch More Cohorts
Learning Cohorts are for lead pastors (teaching, discipleship) and meet once a month to learn, practice, and implement effective disciple-making strategies in their churches and ministries. Members get access to training content (video, PDF, podcast) to share with their teams.
**A GCM is comprised of a group of Christians (6+) committed to love one another, serve others and share Jesus in word and deed to a group of people who don’t yet know the love of God. To clarify, a small group or Bible study that is primarily focused on Christians is not a GCM. When a group of people agree to obey the Bible together in community and on mission with and toward those who don’t yet know and love Jesus, it becomes a GCM. We aim to see 1 GCM per 1000 people where we live (neighborhoods), work (businesses), learn (schools) and play (sports and recreation) – 40000 GCMs in total to reach the Puget Sound.
