Note from pastor JEFF

We believe all men and women need a relationship with Jesus Christ. We are certain in our calling to engage the lost with the gospel. In 2019, Judson once again recorded more than 50,000 Gospel Engagements, keeping us on target to reach our three-year goal of 150,000. This effort led to more students and children taking their next step to follow Christ than we could have imagined. During Global Focus, we far exceeded our one-day offering goal of $75,000 with almost $100,000 to plant churches with The Timothy Initiative in villages across Africa and India that are without a gospel presence. We also took big steps towards financially repositioning the church by refinancing our load and paying off $431,000 during our Foundations Campaign. 


As we enter this new decade, we are praying God will continue the good work He has started. We want to join Him in reaching the lost and discipling believers to take their next step in following Jesus. As you read this vision guide, I hope you will be excited about the direction God has planned for us. The future us now, and it is exciting!

Our Values & Measures

Our values are the foundation for our vision and ministry.

Strategy

The C3 strategy is our Map for Discipleship. 

This Map will help you discover your next step in following Jesus. When you finish the Map for the first time, you are just getting started. You are now ready to guide someone else on this journey. That is why the Map is a circle with no end.

OUR VISION FRAME

Our Mission, Values, Measures and Strategy create a frame for us. Just as a picture frame outlines a picture, these 4 sides of our vision frame give us clarity to where we believe God is leading us in the coming days. This allows us to say, “Yes” to the things that we need to do. At the same time it allows us to say, “No” to things that do not fit. We have outlined the vision in 4 separate time frames. The first is a 90-day time frame. There are 3 initiatives we will implement in the first 90 days of 2020 to push our vision forward. The second time frame is one year. In 2020, we once again believe God is leading us to make an eternal impact in Nashville through Gospel Engagements. The third time frame is between now and January 2022. Over the next two years we have 3 goals we sense God leading us towards. The final time frame takes us through the end of January 2024. This aspect of the vision is unfolding as God leads us in the coming years.
