2) It is time for the church to leave the building to share God’s love intangible ways in the larger community
3) It gives the church credibility in a skeptical world
4) It expands the churches relational network into government, business, and social sectors to have spiritual influence into all aspects of the community
5) It provides opportunity for the church to empower the church community to engage their community
6) It provides new opportunities for the church to lives Jesus in the community
