Frequently Asked Questions
We want to hear from you! Please email any questions or concerns you may have about Next Gen to our communications team and we'll keep building this FAQ resource as a way for everyone to get answers ahead of the congregational vote.
Pastor Rock addressed several of the most common questions we've heard during a Facebook Live session on 2/20. If you missed it, go to our Facebook page or look below in the Publications sections for links to the transcript and the audio file.
What is Next Gen and how does it relate to Expanded Influence and what we've been hearing about until now?
Expanded Influence has nine components and until now, we've focused on the 2 foundational spiritual components of Holy Spirit in us and Holy Spirit through us, through initiatives like 91 Weeks with the Holy Spirit. We've also done initial groundwork with the next three components - the 3Cs of Communications, Church Planting and Campus Redesign.
Next Gen is all about making the 3Cs fully happen over the next three years, so it's the next phase of the Expanded Influence vision but also these 3Cs will allow us to equip the next generation of ministry at ACAC.
What is the status of the parking garage we've heard about?
We remain optimstic about the prospects of a new garage on our property, but it's on its own time table from the rest of our campus redesign proposal. We're still in active negotiations with the hospital about the garage, but we're not ready to bring details forward to the congregation.
In the meantime, we can't put off the need for creating a new home for Children's Ministry as our space in 4AC is at risk of being lost. And we need to simplify and improve the weekend experience for our people as well as visitors and guests. See 'Parking Garage Update' below for more details.
