ALIVE: the vision of National Estate Churches Network.
To see estates enabled to become fully alive in Christ.
“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”
Ephesians 2:4-5 – view in another translation.

Piloting new models of leadership and ministry so that leaders can embrace their callings for the expansion of the Gospel.

Creating space for new initiatives, ways of worship, and discipleship resources to be practiced. Sharing stories that encourage and motivate the advancement of evangelism onto estates.
