On February 25th we were blessed to be able to introduce missio Dei: Falcon’s new pastor of Discipleship, Chad Mondragon. Chad is a Colorado native from Denver. He has 12 years of ministry experience, having planted two churches in Lexington, KY and Centennial, CO. Chad has been part of the Acts29 church planting network for the past 8 years and has helped coach and disciple church planters across multiple networks. He is passionate to welcome not-yet-believers into community and desires to bring other believers into that mission. Chad married his wife Melody in 2004, and together they parent Juliana (10), Adeline (9), Breckinridge (8), Knox (6), and Zion (5). Listen to his introduction at church and get to know him a little better. Over the next few months he will be getting to know as many people as possible, so make sure to introduce yourself and welcome he and Melody to the missio Dei Family.
One of the churches in our network, The Village Church, has published an Advent reading guide for individuals and families. This is a great way for us to unplug from the craziness of the next few weeks and prepare our hearts for Christmas. You can download the guide by clicking here.
This past March we were officially approved for full membership in the Acts 29 church planting network. Acts 29 is a network of like-minded churches committed to seeing new Gospel-centered churches planted around the world. The network chooses to emphasize the following distinctives:
- Gospel centrality in all of life.
- The sovereignty of God in saving sinners.
- The empowering presence of the Holy Spirit for all of life and ministry.
- The fundamental moral and spiritual equality of male and female and to men as responsible
servant-leaders in the home and church.
- The local church as the primary means by which God chooses to establish his kingdom
Additionally, the guiding values for Acts 29 are:
- Plant Churches that Plant Churches
- Be Known for Holiness and Humility
- Become a Radically Diverse Crowd
- Be Serious about Evangelism and Conversions
We are greatly blessed to be a part of a network that strives to see the Gospel take root in communities like ours. Our prayer is to see this partnership flourish for years to come as missio Dei: Falcon becomes a church that plants churches!
