Introducing “TribeNet”

Hello Kingdom people,

For years I’ve heard on a regular basis from individuals and small groups/house churches who wanted to know if there are others in their area that share their vision of a Jesus-looking God raising up a Jesus-looking people to transform the world in a Jesus kind of way. Along the same lines, if you’ve followed me on Twitter for any length of time, you’ve seen me regularly re-tweet requests by people looking for a kingdom-focused church in their region or a region they were moving to.

In response to these requests, the ReKnew team, headed up by the lovely and brilliant Barbara Schendel-Kent, has been working for the past year on an interactive map on which kingdom people can find small groups/house churches and traditionally-modeled churches near them and, if they so choose, connect with other individuals. And it gives me great pleasure to announce that this project is (finally!) complete and is now available online!

Our hope is that this site, which we are calling TribeNet, will not only help kingdom people and communities begin to network together, but also that it would give all who share our kingdom vision a sense of belonging to a common kingdom tribe. We also hope in the future to include a discussion board on which people can discuss kingdom matters as well as a section in which we can pass along video testimonies of what God is doing in the lives of kingdom people.

So, I’d like to strongly encourage all individuals, small groups, house churches, and more traditionally-modeled churches who share our kingdom theology to register themselves on TribeNet.org. (TribeNet contains our statement of faith if you’re wondering what our theology consists of.) It’s self-explanatory and very quick!

Even if you are not looking to connect with others, your registration is important in conveying to others the overall sense of belonging to a bigger movement. And please spread the word about TribeNet.org to others who embrace the kingdom vision. Also, since the site will be a bit sparse for a while until folks have had a chance to register, don’t be discouraged if you don’t see many people or churches in your area. More people will join as word spreads, and you can also create a “Search Alert” to be automatically notified when new small groups/house churches and traditional churches are added near you.

Finally, we also have a Resources page on which organizations are listed that have services to offer kingdom individuals and/or churches. If you are a leader in such an organization (such as a seminary, a church planting training organization, etc.), I encourage you to go to the Resources page and submit a request to be registered on the site as well. Think of it as free advertising!

We here at ReKnew feel blessed to be a part of the “new wine” that God is pouring out in the world right now, and we pray God uses this map to help network this movement that God is birthing into an identifiable kingdom tribe.
