community life + featured content
Every church community, from the steepled to the hip-shabby to the missional was, at one point, a church plant.
A few factors are common - the centrality of the Gospel - tension between the church & culture - the dependance on the Holy Spirit - the Missio Dei - and God's call upon a dudely man to lead.
Some are unique - time, space, style, philosophy of ministry.
For 2010-2011 Reality has been blessed with Dennis & Mistin Wilkinson & their wonderful family, as apprentices. They have served with passion & with Gospel clarity - and have been called to establish a Gospel, missional community in Vancouver's west-end (probably the least-reached part of the least-reached city in North America). It's an incredibly dense, incredibly diverse & incredibly gospel-resistant community. Perfect for the Wilkinsons & the grace of God.
This Fall, Dennis will be transitioning to Full Time pastor of the West End Church plant.
