This is a space where pastors of declining churches share their problems with a team of cultural creatives who offer ideas on what they may want to do. It is confidential for the pastors and their churches but the creative teams advice is not.

In this space, members share funding requests for their particular callings, ministry ideas, and immediate needs. Through crowdfunding, each member has the opportunity to raise these funds. This space is for both those seeking funds and those giving funds. These funds may be for a family emergency, a new project, a particular calling you want to explore, education, volunteerism, and more.

In this space, peer counselors will have the opportunity to do deep listening, talking and prayer with those who need help. This is not formal or licensed counseling in any way, simply a way for those who need a help on particular life issues to receive informal support from those within the community.

In this space, we get together to pray for healing of the sick. We have different venues - we can create a live experience with video - where we meet (and see each other) and pray. We can also take prayer requests and respond by intercessory prayer.

In this space, we "visit" those who need pastoral care through online support. Those joining the group will come alongside those who have requested online visits for prayer and encouragement. Where possible local visits will be made, but as this is a global group, we may not always have a local member for a face-to-face visit.
