Our vision as a congregation is to make disciples who make disciples in the everyday stuff of life so that every man, woman and child in our community has a daily encounter with Jesus in word and deed.
Our goal as Consistory is to work toward the alignment of all our staff and programs with this vision.
At our meeting this month, we heard the testimony of Lauren who shared how the people and ministries of our congregation led her to faith in Jesus. She shared God’s calling to reach out to hear family and friends and her hope of starting a missional community this fall.
Her testimony led us to discuss the ways we have been formed as disciples and helped in our discernment about growing a culture of disciple-making at Cedar Hills. We celebrate the good God is doing and ask for prayers as we invite more of our congregation into the exciting call of disciples making disciples. Pray for Lindsey and the Catalyst Team specifically as they grow disciple-making connections.
We give praise that Steve Poole has started his ministry here with youth and young adults. Please pray for Steve, Cathy, and children Abby and Christopher as they meet our congregation.

Core Calling: Make Disciples
We make disciples who make disciples in the everyday stuff of life so that every man, women, and child in our community has a daily encounter with Jesus in word and deed. We make disciples who seek, love, grow, and serve. “Go make disciples…” (Matthew 28:18-20).
Core Strategy: Missional Communities.
Grow missional communities through:
- Gospel: Life in Jesus.
- Community: Life together.
- Mission: Life reaching out.
