We had a tremendous turnout for our recent Vision Night at Mountainview. We started hosting an annual Vision Night last year as a way of celebrating the previous year and outlining the goals and dreams that are on the horizon. What I will do over the next few posts is to recap what we shared.
What Will We Do In 2015 To Further Accomplish Our Vision of Starting Churches and Campuses?
By focusing on Glorifying God, Growing in Jesus, and Going into the world, we will be creating the proper environment for growth. Growth will allow us to move more intentionally and aggressively in accomplishing our vision.
In addition funding new missions and setting aside money for reserves and tech upgrades, we also used part of the stock donation to create a bucket to help support new churches. I’m pleased that in addition to Elevation and Front Range, we are adding two new churches starting this month.

North Broomfield plant led by Barry Hendrick
In addition, we will continue to support Elevation Christian in Aurora as well as Front Range in Castle Rock.
By the beginning of 2020, Mountainview will have partnered with area churches to help start ten new churches.
While we support new churches in and around Denver, we also have a commitment to growing Mountainview. There are too many people in our own surrounding communities who do not have a relationship with Jesus. We have a responsibility to do something about that.
That’s why I’m excited to announce that we have a goal of growing and extending Mountainview’s impact to the point of needing to open a second campus by the end of 2016.
Why? Because that will mean more people in a saved relationship with Jesus, more marriages on the mend, and more children growing up in godly homes.
We want to identify communities where we have pockets of Mountainview members.
How can you help?
If you live in Littleton or Roxborough or Castle Pines or any other town in South Denver – we want you to think about how we can best reach and serve your neighborhood.
We want to identify established churches in older neighborhoods in which we can help rekindle a kingdom purpose. These existing churches represent kingdom assets that should not be lost to the kingdom. There are many church properties around South Denver that once housed viable, growing churches but that have fallen into decline.
How can you help?
If you know of a church that needs help, let us know. Our staff is committed to being kingdom people.
I want Mountainview to be known as the church that cares for other churches. I want our reputation to be such that whenever a neighboring church needs programming help or guest speakers or children’s resources that they hear, “Go ask Mountainview.”
If these relationships and resourcing lead to adopting and reviving a second campus, that would be great.
If not, it is still the right thing to do.
