“Our journey into the future will continue through more congregations becoming willing to transform in response to new opportunities. It also will occur through starting new expressions of the church to model what we are talking about.” – Steve Veazey, “A Time to Act!”
New Expressions of Community are an exciting pathway for us to experience Christian community beyond the walls of the congregation experience. Therefore, New Expressions of Community are not connected with an existing congregation but rather an opportunity for us to experience such community in a variety of ways in the many spaces of our communities that we work, learn, play, and live in.

New Expression Mondays started as an initiative of the Greater Pacific Northwest USA Mission Center in January 2022. They provided an opportunity for conversations about what is transforming within the church and where God is inviting us to experiment and create sacred community in our communities while also being a place to explore ideas that you might have for starting a New Expression of Community.
Starting in January 2023, New Expression Mondays will continue and be provided by Community Connections, an online New Expression of Community co-sponsored by the Greater Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountain Mission Centers. With this change, we would like to invite all in the Western Field who are interested in exploring New Expressions of Community to join in on the conversation when your schedule allows, and interest is piqued.
New Expression Mondays take place on Zoom the first Monday evening of every month. While the focus of these conversations are on New Expressions of Community and therefore beyond the focus of the congregational experience, we will spend 2 New Expression Mondays a year exploring Fresh Expressions of Ministry which is focused on existing congregations exploring Christian community in new and exciting ways. When that is the focus, we will announce it in advance.
