Imagine a city where churches are connected through a web of awareness, community, and collaboration -- that reaches into the city and out to the world. Imagine hundreds of churches joining forces in mission -- churches pursuing unity, but not just for unity's sake...unity for the purpose of mission.
This is what Jesus was praying for in John 17:23 -- that the followers of Jesus would be in such complete unity that the world would know that God the Father sent Jesus, and that the Father loves the other people in the world like He loves Jesus.

This degree of partnership is guaranteed to be messy, but it's also sure to be exceptionally fulfilling and fruitful. What if pastors and church mission leaders focused at least 10% of their time on the citywide Church? Watch out! And guess what -- it's already starting to happen! There are many examples already of this happening, and we expect to see more and more of it.
By joining The Sending Alliance, you and your church are agreeing to a very basic but important covenant. It is not a commitment to a certain mission program...it is the commitment to go on a journey together...a commitment to growing in awareness, community, and collaboration with other pastors and church mission leaders.

Let's keep pursuing this dream -- this prayer -- this vision that Jesus prayed for about 2,000 years ago. Let's be a part of the fulfillment of that prayer in our lifetime! If your church is already a part of The Sending Alliance, thanks for blazing the trail. If your church is not a part of The Sending Alliance, we encourage and invite you to jump on board...and hold on...because we're expecting God to do some amazing things as the Church of KC, His Church, joins together and missionally connects like never before.
