The mission of the Dream Team is…
To build the body of Christ by each person fulfilling their calling and serving to make an eternal difference.
Serving is in the culture, the DNA, of Mercy. As we have grown, our culture has remained one of selfless service to our incredible God and His people. Protected and fostered by leaders who model servanthood, this culture is one of strong relationships and continuous growth. We are here to build the Body of Christ as we, ourselves, are being built as the Body of Christ.
[Jesus], being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death — even death on a cross! (PHILIPPIANS 2:6-8, NIV)
As our Dream Team grows with the growth of our church, we are continually aware that God will build His Church! One main goal for the Team is to create a community of care, acceptance and warmth for all of our guests attending a worship experience. Another goal is for the Team to maintain a community of support, encouragement and prayer covering so that each member can be led to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. We strive to maintain a life group feel within each of our teams, realizing that for many, their service team is their life-group. Through pre-service meetings, team appreciation parties, leadership development meetings and more, we are cultivating the seeds of relationships.
They devoted themselves to the apostle’s teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer…All the believers were together and had everything in common…Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. (ACTS 2:42-47, NIV)
Our win is a spiritually mature, passionate, relationally connected and unified Body of Christ — humbly serving in their passions, effectively advancing the Kingdom, worshipping God with every single act of service, and walking in complete fulfillment of their purpose.
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory. (2 CORINTHIANS 3:18, NIV)
