What is a Ministry Cluster?


The Fountain - Tippecanoe Ministry Cluster is a group of six local churches who choose to work together to accomplish the Gospel mission in the Greater Lafayette, Indiana area.  We share common ministry needs and work together to learn from each other.

Ministry clusters are designed to focus on answering two core questions:

  1. How are each of our congregations doing in our local church ministries toward accomplishing our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world? and
  2. What can we do better and more effectively together in our ministries to impact our area for Christ than we can do as individual congregations?

Ministry Clusters are not about merging churches or closing churches or forcing churches to do joint programs - they are about ministry and supporting one another as we seek to be faithful in ministry. In fact, the first task of each Ministry Cluster is to pray for one another regularly.
