All GRCC ministries must meet the following criteria: CLARITY, MOVEMENT, ALIGNMENT, AND FOCUS. 

Clarity: Our mission and process are clear and simple. We make disciples by loving God, loving others, and serving all. 

Movement: Our discipleship structure is designed to move people through the process, beginning with learning to love God, then learning to love other, and finally actively serving all. The point of entry into the process is worship (love God). From there participants are encouraged to join a small group (Bible class, home group, support group, etc.). Finally, participants are asked to commit to service on a ministry team. 

Alignment: In order to maximize energy and resources everything must align with the process of loving God, loving others, and serving all.  

Focus: The focus of every ministry is to urge members to get involved in the worship services, to connect with others in a small group, and to commit to service on a ministry team. Focusing on this simple process means saying “No” to many other things.
