Hello <<First Name>>!

      We're in a process of clarifying our mission and vision and get so excited as we identify more and more of what God has called us to in the city...
 We want to see Chicago become the best possible version of itself. We believe the Millennial generation plays an incredible role in this transformation when they are flourishing personally, flourishing in community and contributing to the greater good of the city.
      In light of that, we want to come alongside you and have the critical conversations to help you flourish in this defining decade of life. We want to help you connect in vital, life-giving community through the local church and others in our network. And we want to help you clarify the mission God has called you to for the glory of God and the flourishing of our great city. 

      Read more below on the nature of Biblical flourishing and find ways to get connected to community and mission. Hope to see you soon!
Connect in Community

Without space to connect with others the work day can be isolating, discouraging and long. We'd love for you to have a relaxing lunch hour to meet like-minded people and enjoy fellowship in the middle of your day. We also hope it's a safe space to invite friends and co-workers into community.

When: Thursday, Sep 21

Time: Noon - 1:00pm

Where: Chase Tower Food Court - lower level (we sit near the entrance to the Blue Line, across from the food area)
Connect on Mission
Contributing to the flourishing of the city can happen in a variety of ways - loving your neighbor, doing your work in ways that honor God, serving the poor and marginalized, fighting injustice and many more.

We love the mission of GRIP and believe that some of you may find working with fatherless youth a place you'd like to invest. There are plenty of ways to get involved - from tutoring in a school to helping with the Monday night SLAM outreach program (games, sports, Bible teaching and discussion).

Connect with God

Flourishing in Every Dimension of Life
Dr Art Lindsley

Biblical flourishing encompasses all of life and is distinct from the cultural view of flourishing, which is only about personal happiness, prosperity, and wealth. Biblical flourishing is the motivation and desire for wellness in all human activity. It’s what happens when we do our work and live life to fulfill God’s redemptive purposes for his creation.

Ultimately, we will not have a perfect experience of biblical flourishing until Christ returns. Yet we can taste it now and give others a glimpse of the way things will be when he returns to make all things new.

Find Friends!
Did you know we have a closed Facebook Group where you can find and post info for others that are part our network? 

Gather a group together for a movie you've wanted to see. Let people know about an event your church is hosting. Share about a roommate need or an open spot in your apartment. We want this to be a safe space to connect with other 20-somethings in the city. 

Make sure to join today and invite others to do the same!

Who Are We?
We are a growing network of 20-somethings in Chicagoland and in other cities around the country. We want to help this generation connect. Connect with God, connect in community, and connect to their God-given purpose in life.

We also desire to see the local church thrive and to that end we come alongside and partner with the church to serve millennials, the next generation of leaders. We believe when the individual and church are thriving we will see whole neighborhoods renewed and industries prospering for the good of all people and to the glory of God.

And we believe God has called you here, even if it's for a short time, to experience abundant life in Him and to serve Him by fully living out who He's created you to be. We don't want you to "join us," in fact we want nothing more than to join you and encourage and serve you as you live on mission in your work, in your neighborhood and in this city.
