ABOUT US

You are most likely familiar with the town of Gurnee, Illinois. Maybe you grew up here. Maybe you moved here as an adult. When you think of Gurnee, you probably think of Six Flags, Gurnee Mills, and a whole string of restaurants. These are token attractions that Gurnee is well known for.


Imagine more for Gurnee. Imagine it as a place of richness and depth in community where real connections are happening regularly.


Imagine that when you hear Gurnee, Jesus comes to mind. Your heart fills with stories of transformed lives, families, neighborhoods, churches and whole communities. Friends and families are growing spiritually within a community, coming together to help one another in crisis and in everyday life to know Jesus more.


This is possible. This is within reach. And this is what we have been called to.

VISION

The vision of GO TOGETHER is transformed lives, families, neighborhoods, churches and whole communities.


Whole lives - seeing real change in people's lives as they turn to Christ

Nurturing families - seeing families become healthy, strong and united

Connected neighborhoods - seeing neighborhoods take on the commands of Christ to care for others

Growing churches - seeing churches once again become the center and touchpoint of the community

Transformed communities - seeing communities thrive and grow in grace and truth


Our core convictions are:

Paradigms not programs - we must all think differently about what it means to be a follower of Jesus and begin to develop different lifestyle habits.

We are responsible for the people in our own circles of influence - we must feel a weight of responsibility for the people in their own circle of influence.

God is already at work - God is already moving in the hearts of your neighbors, friends and family. Our job is merely to identify where he is already at work and join in what He is doing.

We are going to do this together - taking responsibility for our circles of influence, and taking action to bring the Gospel to people who haven't heard it, was never meant to be done alone.


GO TOGETHER exists to encourage and equip individuals to establish and maintain these missionary partnerships.
