Front Yard Mission
What would happen if Jesus lived in every neighborhood of Central PA? Our Front Yard Mission is to be a light to our neighbors by praying for them, caring for them, and sharing with them.
“So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8
What/Where is my Front-Yard?
Your front-yard is a group of people in your circle. They are people geographically close to you. Think about your average week and daily activities. We encourage you to first consider your geographic neighborhood, but other front-yards might include your workplace, or some other group that you are with weekly.
How long are we going to do this?
This is a long-term strategy, not a short-term event. Calvary is going to do this for the foreseeable future. Your commitment timeline will be shaped by your plan.
Can I do this?
Not only can you do this, I believe that God has uniquely shaped, prepared and is ready to empower you to do this. Let us direct you to some of the people who are doing it now!
Do I really need a coach?
When Jesus sent the 70 out to prepare the communities who was going to visit, he sent them 2x2. We believe that having the encouragement and resourcing of a coach will lead to much greater effectiveness and sustainability.
How many people should be part of my front-yard?
That’s a great conversation to have with your coach. We recommend starting with a number that will allow you to know the names, pray personally and intentionally care for and share with each person. 100 is too many, and 1 is too few!
