In August 2017, Church of the Cross began a multi-year discipleship initiative designed to discern our unique call from God in mission for others.

The LEAD iniative has four processes: Tune In, Wake Up, Dig Down, and Work Out

In May, 2018, we began the Tune In process by forming a Listening Team. Over the next year, the Listening Team listened to God through prayer and Scripture, listened to God through our congregation, and listened to God through the neighborhood. Out of this listening, the council took on creating a community kitchen (in conjunction with Calgary Cooks and the Southwest Calgary Resource Center) and having interfaith, community forums.

In November, 2019, we began the Wake Up process with the congregational council choosing to be the Centering Team

Results and current processes of the LEAD initiative are accessible here.
