HELPING PEOPLE AND IDEAS RISE
Wayzata Community Church is a community of humble followers of Jesus Christ who choose, by God’s grace, to live by love, seek continual transformation, and equip all to be servant leaders in the Twin Cities and throughout the world. In other words, the energy Christians gain from their relationship to Jesus within this faith community is ultimately intended for the sake of others.
The purpose of Dough is to identify, empower, and prioritize the use of the human and financial resources from within Wayzata Community Church for the sake of entrepreneurial ventures with program models that would ideally serve as catalysts for self-reliance and empowerment, promoting human flourishing.
Wayzata Community Church intends to be faithful stewards of our resources for the sake of the Kingdom of God. WCC has people, relationships, experience, and facilities to assist and direct mission endeavors. We desire to unleash these resources for the sake of Christ’s work in the world. Further, WCC desires to be a place where people are drawn to develop and use their particular gifts, talents, and skills.
Finally, Wayzata Community Church has been challenged to heed a personal and collective calling to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our Lord. Historically, common mission works to generate enthusiasm, galvanize service, solicit deeper faith, necessitate prayer, build community, and bear fruit for the kingdom of God. Wayzata Community Church seeks to do that which will stretch us toward greater faith and dependence on Christ as we demonstrate love for our neighbors.
The outcomes of Dough will be “good.”
