614 is a network of incarnational faith communities in urban centres in several countries, who are committed to a shared vision: Rebuild, Restore, Renew (Isaiah 61:4) and a shared mission: Plans, Hope, Future (Jeremiah 29:11).
We encourage, support, and resource each other as much as possible believing that we are better together.
Why join the 614 network? What are the requirements and the benefits? Firstly, it needs to be understood that “614” per se, is not a model or a formula. It is not a way of doing things, a step-by-step that will result in guaranteed success for any would-be church planters or leaders. Nor is it a panacea for revival in difficult urban communities.
Listed here are some of the main benefits of joining the 614 Network:
The opportunity to be in intentional relationship with others who are committed to and involved with incarnational urban mission and ministry. There is great encouragement and support in knowing that there are others out there with a similar vision, working through the tough questions and hard answers in similar contexts.
Through notices of job opportunities, gathering points; presence on the 614 network website, notices of relevant events and conferences; the sharing of resources such as books, articles, music, videos and other forms of media.
The right to use the 614 brand. There are presently three “official” 614 logos in use, two incorporating The Salvation Army red shield and one without.
There is strength in numbers and so there is value in having a collective voice in order to advocate on behalf of urban ministry and the priority of this as a mission stream.
