How We Relate Infuse Network

Partnering with the Church in Ohio to multiply disciples and support gospel-driven movements.

The Infuse Network is an initiative of the East Central Region seeking to identify and connect churches who are not currently part of our denominational family, but share the same heartbeat to multiply disciples in their local church context and see cities saturated with the gospel.

1 Thessalonians 3:13 reads, “May you be infused with strength and purity, filled with confidence in the presence of God our Father when our Master Jesus arrives with all his followers.” We seek to advance disciple multiplication among likeminded churches through mutual training, coaching, encouragement, and accountability in order to see the Church in Ohio infused with strength and purity. We currently achieve this primarily through 3 priorities: Relate, Resource, and Reproduce.

Relate: Fostering relationships amongst the Church, to provide encouragement and support, helping them thrive in faithfulness and fruitfulness.

Resource: Equipping the Church to make disciples who faithfully represent the gospel where they live, work, learn, and play.

Reproduce: Partnering with the Church to multiply disciples, leaders, and churches throughout Ohio to reach identified people in defined places.

If you are interested in learning more about Infuse or finding ways to collaborate deeper around Kingdom-minded initiatives, we invite you to join us. We want to partner with others to see lives and communities transformed by the Gospel and ultimately to be part of fulfilling the Great Commission.

In addition to collaborating, sharing ideas, and working toward a common vision, our network provides the following tools for pastors and churches as well:

Assessment: Gaining a realistic view of where your church is currently and where it needs to go in the future.

Training/Resourcing: Getting the tools necessary to move your people from point A to Point B in making disciples who live lives of purity and boldness.

Coaching/Consulting: Connecting regularly with experienced pastors who will help sharpen your dull areas and offer personalized insight to keep you on track with making disciples.

Partnership: Receiving the encouragement and accountability from others in similar circumstances in ministry. You are not in this alone.
