May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Romans 15:5-6 NIV84)
OneHeartDC is a movement uniting and mobilizing churches, church networks and other organizations to saturate the Metro Washington DC region (DMV) with the Good News of the Gospel. We want each of our 5 million neighbors to experience the love and message of Jesus Christ through one or more of our partners.
We celebrate what God is doing here – creating greater visibility and awe of God within our churches and communities.
We accelerate the spread of the Good News by sharing information, resources and teams for greater impact.
• Missional Objectives
OneHeartDC provides a platform or eco-system to release latent Kingdom building capacity for Gospel Saturation of the DMV. Three foundational ‘pillars’ interconnect the Body of Christ so we are more fully functioning:
Prayer – We are founded and fueled through prayer that strengthens our communion with God and maintains covering over our mission. We sponsor prayer and worship gatherings as catalysts for building a regional culture of prayer. We seek to cover households across our entire region in prayer by name.
Unity – We are a movement of churches, Christian leaders and organizations united in our belief that the Good News of Jesus Christ changes lives. Thus, we assume collective accountability for reaching every man, woman and child with the Gospel. Our bonds around this goal and core Christian theologies allows mobilization and collaboration together and setting aside any denominational, generational, racial and ethnic barriers. Through relationships in Leadership Clusters, we strengthen capacities for transformation of people and communities through discipleship, service and evangelism. Our unity helps us to assess regional coverage of the Gospel and assure multiplication through new church plants and missions in the gaps. Our unity results in bridge-building, reconciliation and thriving communities.
Hope – We offer hope by proclaiming the gospel in Word and demonstrating it in deed. This occurs through local and regional mobilization and collaboration together. We provide a network for sharing information on events, equipping for mission, service projects and resources, and sharing stories that inspire hope and point people to God and His glory.
