A multi-ethnic, gospel-centered church planting church called to help you flourish
Due to COVID-19 we did not physically launch on April 12, 2020. The situation is changing by the day; therefore, we have planned the following:
Subsequently, one would be hard pressed to find any Black churches raising up and supporting church planters outside of a multi-site situation. In contrast, while White churches plant churches in the central-city, there is a disconnect when it comes to embracing the central city context; and having a fair representation of multi-ethnic leadership and decision making. Unfortunately, the suburban cookie-cutter approach applied to a central city context commonly ends up in a failed church plant. In many cases, these plants include a church planter that is a transplant instead of an indigenous minister empowered to further the kingdom in a central city context. In other cases, and much like the Black church, a White church may forgo an autonomous plant altogether; and instead, only add an additional site to their number. Consequently, without the presence of contextually appropriate bible-based church plants, more people in Milwaukee are leaving traditional churches and transitioning to nothing. Further exacerbating the problem is a growing demographic of central-city residents who have completely lost faith in the church altogether due to either personal experience or negative perception. Additionally, other doctrines such as the Black Israelites are beginning to take up residence in Milwaukee. Without the infusion of new gospel centered churches being planted in the context of the central city, the gospel will be under heavy attack in Milwaukee. Currently, options could be much better when it comes to a contextually appropriate, bible based, multi-ethnic, central city church.
In conjunction with Central City Church Planters, Uflourish will plant five churches over the next five years.
Be that as it may, and in an effort to address the lack of church planting in Milwaukee, a culture of church planting among the Black church community in partnership with White suburban churches must be built.
The teaching model at Uflourish Church will include multi-ethnic team teaching centered on expository preaching through entire books of the bible.
The worship style to be employed at Uflourish will be a unique blend of authentic worship from two or more cultures. An example would include an authentic mix of K-Love and contemporary gospel.
The typical worship service of Uflourish Church will last one hour and 10 minutes.
Positively impacting the space we occupy will be key to who we are. We intend to be at the forefront in serving and partnering with organizations already doing great things in our community.
There will be no official dress code to abide by. Feel free to dress comfortably as you attend our services.
