Community Engagement

Shades exists for more than can be accomplished within the church building walls. God has called us to "seek the welfare of the city." (Jer. 29:7) 

Supporting Institutions

Shades has a number of Community Engagement Teams that are actively serving community institutions and groups of people. Below are some of the teams that you can serve with today.

Starting New Works

There are many corners of our community where the majority of people are unchurched. In these places, we are actively pursuing the start of new works to reach people for Jesus Christ and grow them to mature disciples. We are praying for opportunities to revitalize churches that are struggling. We are prayerfully considering potential places to plant new churches. These are exciting new works that have the potential to impact our community for generations to come.

Interested in being a part of a new work in your community? Email Tommy DeRamus, Minster of Community Engagement.
