“All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit.” —Acts 2:4

1001 New Worshiping Communities

This fund is established in response to the Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA) recommendation to the 2012 GA that states: The GA, in gratitude and response to God for the movement of the Holy Spirit in this time and place: Declare a church wide commitment to ignite a movement that results in the creation of 1001 new worshiping communities in the next ten years; Encourage each GA agency to join in fulfilling this movement; and Encourage each session and mid-council to pray for the fulfillment of God's purpose within this movement and discern and pursue ways to participate in this movement. As mid-councils and churches work together toward this vision of 1001 new worshiping communities, the PMA hopes to create the conditions that allow our existing worshiping communities to flourish, and engages the whole church in the creation of over 1001 new worshiping communities in the next 10 years.
