If you find community at the Branch, we invite you to become a Covenant Partner.
As far as we’re concerned, if you have chosen to join us in any way (on Sundays, at a Missional Community, through a small group), then you belong here. We celebrate that you are a part of this family.
Partners make a commitment to intentionally live out the Branch vision and values together. It’s that simple. No dues to pay or vows to take. No special outfits to wear or fancy perks to receive. Partners simply decide to lock arms and love others in the way of Jesus.
As a person’s sense of belonging grows, they may be ready to take additional steps of involvement and commitment: steps of commitment toward one another and toward the Branch as a whole; steps that help ensure that the Branch moves forward with strength.
We also make intentional investments in our Partners throughout the year. This makes Partnership a covenant relationship, with the individual helping to move the community forward and the community helping to move the individual.
Finally, it’s important to note that because of the way our lives are always changing, because all of us go through different seasons, becoming a Partner is not a once and forever commitment. We ask people to commit to being a Partner for two years. At the end of that two years, each Partner has the opportunity to re-evaluate where they are in life and whether they would like to commit to another two years.
