Missional Communities and Triads
Belonging is a key value at Jericho Road. When people connect in meaningful relationships they become part of the family. Missional Communities foster these connections.
Most JRC Missional Communities are gatherings between 15 and 25 people; the early church met in homes to break bread, pray, and live in community with one another. These first church communities also had a mission: to spread the Good News of the Gospel.
At Jericho Road, we desire to imitate this practice of living in community throughout our months (many of our groups meet weekly), eating and playing and praying together, as we move out in mission.
In these smaller gatherings, we hold each other accountable to go and love, to proclaim the name of Jesus by word and deed. At Jericho Road we believe everyone is a missionary! Where do you live your life? That’s where God has called you to proclaim His name! Daily!
Our MC Weekends also provide an open calendar space for Missional Communities to move out together in mission.
Too often, American Christianity is characterized by passive discipleship; we’ve learned concepts yet lack practical implementation of what we’ve learned. We need a new definition of discipleship.
When Jesus called His disciples, it cost them something. Walking in the way of Jesus requires commitment and intentionality. And we can’t do it alone.
A triad is a very small group of people, often three, who commit to intentional and regular times together get together.
This gathering becomes a laboratory for the Holy Spirit, and is built around:
Immersion in the unchanging truth of God’s Word.
