Faith in Rural Communities - Good Neighbor Experiment

Good Neighbor Experiment

Faith in Rural Communities is partnering with The Neighboring Movement based in Wichita, KS to bring the Good Neighbor Experiment to churches in North Carolina.

The Good Neighbor Experiment is a 4-month learning cohort that takes Jesus' call to love your neighbors literally and seriously. How well do you know the people who live in the immediate area around your home? How would your life be different if you knew those people better and could support one another? How could those individual, personal relationships transform your church? Help your congregation move from inauthenticity to joy, draining program management to relationships, and scarcity to abundance using the tools of asset-based community development.

The program includes:

  • 4 weeks of worship service resources (scripture and hymn recommendations, sermon outlines, children's moment illustrations, and more)

  • 15 weeks of small group study with practical applications to help the members of your church get to know their neighbors better

  • Monthly coaching with a trained coach while in the program, with access to additional support once you complete the program

  • Invitation to 4 virtual events with other churches from across the country also participating in the cohort

The full cost for the program is $1,000, but scholarships of up to $500 are available. Faith in Rural Communities does not want cost to be a barrier that keeps the members of your congregation from these transformational tools.
