2PC Planning Toolbox

Welcome to the 2 Pillars Church event and project planning page. 

If you would like to propose and/or plan a project, event, idea, or vision in/for/through the 2 Pillars body or using the 2 Pillars name, then this page is your first step to that end.

A Note About Philosophy of Ministry

As a church, we do two things:

  • We gather corporately to worship on Sunday mornings.
  • We gather throughout the City throughout the week in Gospel Communities.

That's it.

Ninety percent of everything we do takes place in or through one of these two settings. Therefore, 2 Pillars doesn't have additional “ministries” outside of Gospel Communities (GC). If there is a people, place, or cause that you are passionate about reaching or engaging, then we recommend that you do so within the context of a GC.

If you are not a member of a GC, then you should talk to a 2 Pillars member or elder about how to be connected with one. 

If you are already a member of a GC, then you should consider bringing the idea to your GC leader for consideration first. 

If, for some reason, your idea is not best implemented within the context of your current GC (e.g. does not fit with GC's shared mission focus), then you might consider gathering a new GC around your idea or vision. Talk with an elder for more information. 

Rarely, it is appropriate and acceptable for an idea or vision to be implemented for/by the church at-large. If you think you have the exception to this rule, then you may proceed with proposal submission process. Please do not do so, however, without first strongly considering whether this might somehow fit within the context of a Gospel Community. 

Event and Project Planning “Plumb Lines”

Now, let's lay out some guidelines:

  • All events and project proposals must be reviewed by the elders of 2 Pillars Church before moving forward to active planning or implementation.
  • As Christ's ambassadors, all 2 Pillars events and projects should be done with excellence. 
  • All deadlines should be respected.

Submission & Review Process
