Neighborhood Initiative and Lynn Cory

The Vision: “The whole church taking the whole gospel to the whole city, one neighborhood at a time.”

I have been a pastor since 1969 and served to support two senior pastors in their ministries for almost 40 years. I can empathize and understand the difficulties of a senior pastor and the difficulties of moving a congregation to become incarnational.


Here’s why Lynn can help:

1. He and his wife have been involved in loving their actual neighbors for fifty years and have encouraged others in their own neighborhoods to become active in loving their neighbors.

2. In 2008, Lynn invited those in his congregation to become active in loving neighbors (many of their stories are in the Neighborhood Initiative book).

3. Eventually, other pastors in his city became interested in what those in his congregation were doing, and Lynn helped them get started with their congregation.

4. In time, Lynn began receiving referrals from pastors who recommended him to other pastors to help them initiate this kind of work in their communities (many of their stories are in The Incarnational Church and in the video section).

5. Over the last ten years Lynn has written five books on the subject matter to assist pastors and leaders to move their congregations toward being a part of Jesus’ grassroots movement.

6. Today, Lynn is involved in coaching pastors and leaders in the neighboring movement and he would love to hear from you if the Lord is leading you in this direction.

“My heart is with the Neighborhood Initiative under Christ. It’s the only thing that can bring life to our cities now. Neighborhood Initiative has been raised up in our time by the Spirit of God to address the special conditions of our cities.” – Dallas Willard


Bruce Zachary

Bruce Zachary planted a Calvary Chapel with his wife in their living room. After 20 years the church had grown to have “great success,” but it was revealed to Bruce that something of utmost importance was missing. He reveals in his story what was missing and how it revolutionized his life and the impact it can have on our world.
