Forge Hollywood seeks to serve local churches by offering training and support to leaders so you can better make disciples in your own communities. Our dream is to nurture and cultivate a community of Kingdom minded churches that will ensure the redemptive mission of God continues to thrive in Hollywood amidst the cultural changes ahead.
THE CHURCH IN OUR CULTURE IS IN CRISIS.
The statistics are alarming: in the last fifty years the church has experienced a position of trended decline across the Western world. It is estimated that the prevailing models of evangelistic churches at their best can reach 40 percent of the American population. But it seems 90 percent of churches and church plants spend the majority of their resources vying for the same 40 percent.
There is a great need to develop a new way of enacting the mission of God with the other 60 percent in mind. This is precisely what Forge exists to do. Forge aims to focus its energy on developing leadership that can understand the missional challenge and proactively develop strategies and approaches that will be able to take the mission of God into new and uncharted ground with fresh and creative expressions.
FORGE IDENTIFIES, DEVELOPS, AND NURTURES MISSIONAL LEADERS.
Forge does not plant churches or run ministries, but instead trains missionaries to thrive in whatever context they are called to, be that a local church, a neighborhood, a professional network, etc. Through grass roots residencies, church transition consultation, and organizational partnerships Forge Hollywood is participating in the shaping of things to come.
