Red Clay Creek Presbyterian Church of Wilmington Delaware seeks to be a faithful community that is focused with a ‘missional’ doctrine and daily practice. As both a typical but atypical congregation with about 950 members with average demographics (aging) in a suburban but near urban setting, we are a congregation seeking to act our faith through service and program leadership and for ordained ministry to help provide theological leadership and vision.

The basis for supporting our participatory mission activities has been an active children and youth Nurture program that not only provides a foundation in Christian education and fellowship, but also serves to develop lay leaders for both the Nurture and Reach programs of the church. It has been the connection between Nurture (education) and Reach (mission) that has allowed the growth of lay participatory mission.

We are strongly focused toward attracting ordained staff to support our Nurture programs for children and youth and to continue to develop lay leadership for both our Nurture and Reach programs leading into participatory mission allowing faithful sharing of our Christian Spirit.

How do you feel called to reach out to address the emerging needs of your community or constituency?

Our participatory mission activities are focused at three levels; locally, regionally, and internationally with local mission efforts being the most continuously active. We participate in the local food bank, homeless ministries, urban youth development, and other programs focused on the elderly and those in need. We also proudly host a very large AA community, scouting, and preschool activities using our facilities. Our church community and facilities are open and actively participate in one or several of these missions. A common experience is that participants derive as much or more value in growth and faith development as those we minister to and with. Many in the congregation deeply feel the connection between the call to mission and the nurture of our faith. They are different faces of the same spirit.

How will this position help you to reach your vision and mission goals?

In recent times a precipitous decline in our Nurture of our Christian education and youth Fellowship has jeopardized our development of lay leaders for Nurture and Reach. This is an area we have recognized as critical to all aspects of our growth as a Church and as a participatory mission congregation. We are strongly focused on reversing this decline and are well equipped to do so with the help of a new energetic and Nurture and Mission oriented staff. We call out to You to help us get back on track in the Nurture and Reach areas through the development of program and lay leaders. Come and help us return to our path of growth and success.
