CGN Local Contacts

Become a CGN Local Contact!

Ready to be an integral part of building community within the Church of God? CGN Local Contacts are passionate individuals eager to meet fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, actively supporting the Church of God Network in our mission. As a Local Contact, you’ll be the go-to person for CGN in your area and making a meaningful impact.

The primary functions of CGN Local Contacts are to: 1) fellowship, 2) serve, and 3) build bridges. More specifically, local contacts will help CGN in the following ways:

  • Connecting individuals with CGN who are passionate about our mission (both members & leadership).
  • Monitoring local needs: natural disasters, persecution, tragedies, and other challenges.
  • When relevant, mentioning to brethren how CGN’s programs and resources can help.
  • Identifying gaps in CGN’s information, programming, and marketing (general feedback is also appreciated).

We hope every CGN Local Contact sees their personal Church network grow and feels more connected to brethren than ever before in the process!

Responsibilities:

  1. All local contacts will fellowship with brethren from at least 2 other groups each year (groups the contact doesn’t currently attend with). This can involve attending Church services or casual fellowship outside of services such as getting together for a meal or attending an event.
  2. Contacts will respond to inquiries, relating to their geographic area, from individuals reaching out via the CGN website. The CGN team will help with questions as well! It’s a team effort.
  3. Stay connected with the CGN team through periodic phone or Zoom calls. The CGN Local Contacts will meet together as a group quarterly via Zoom.

General Guidelines:

  • Coordinate Visits in Advance: If you are visiting neighboring Church of God organizations, always seek permission in advance and coordinate with your home congregation minister to ensure it aligns with your responsibilities at home. Expectations are that local contacts will fellowship with another group (different from the one they normally attend with) twice a year. Though you can absolutely visit more if it’s doable! The fellowship can be in the form of visiting for Church services or something casual like grabbing dinner with members of another fellowship.
  • Serve: Get involved! Find ways to assist and serve during your visits. Your willingness to help will be greatly appreciated.
  • Respect Leadership: Respect the authority in place at other congregations. Remember, you’re a guest, so work harmoniously with their leadership.
  • Make Friends: Connect with your brothers and sisters in the places you visit. Cultivate friendships, build meaningful relationships, and enjoy the experience.
  • Avoid Division: During visits, steer clear of arguments, controversial beliefs, or anything that might cause division among brethren.
  • Stay Informed: Keep an eye out for opportunities where CGN can contribute in your area. Stay connected with local brethren, ministers, and be the go-to person for information or assistance.
