THE BEST IS YET TO COME
We are expanding Cast Member Church from Orlando to Anaheim and Paris over the next two years.
The strength of Cast Member Church is in our desire to stay small as we continue to multiply. We intentionally keep our structure simple, giving Jesus the room to move as He pleases.
We have discovered that life-transformation happens in small family environments that we call, "CommuniDs." These are described as "micro-churches," where one will find WORSHIP (Romans 12:1), FAMILY (Acts 2:44-47), and MISSION (Romans 10:13,14).
Each CommuniD is a unique expression of the Body of Christ. Though together they share the same DNA, each one looks different from the rest. The CommuniD is the heart of Cast Member Church. Keeping it simple and unencumbered is a high priority.
The same can be said for Anaheim and Paris. They will have unique cultural implications that will be embraced and built upon as they grow and multiply. Our goal is unity, not uniformity. Therefore they will be encouraged to "become" as Jesus leads. Even though we will be one church, Anaheim will be different from Orlando, and Paris will be different from Anaheim.
The Cast Member Church "HUB" (currently based in Orlando) will serve as the connection point, providing leadership development and mentoring for all three locations. The HUB will also be a source for tools and training (original video and print content) designed for all locations to use for their own disciplemaking context.
Seven years of experience have taught us so much: Everything we do in Cast Member Church is established through prayer and relationship building.
PRAYER: We always seek Jesus before we do anything.
PRESENCE: We show up where the Cast Members are.
PEOPLE: We express the value God places on them.
PROCESS: We build trust based on mutual vulnerability.
PROMISE: We offer the hope of Jesus as they give us access to their lives.
