HOSTs (members) are people who have moved into the DCV COMMUNITY. We can identify them through regular connections, displayed commitment and “unity” with the Delaware City Vineyard and its ministries. Our DCV COMMUNITY’s quick answer to the question, “What church do you belong to?” would be, “the Delaware City Vineyard.” We are so grateful for all the men, women and families that God has drawn into our Community over these past three years. You may be surprised to know this, but as best as we can tell, that is over 350 people!
As we’ve mentioned on other occasions, there is an important shift that has to occur in the heart of a “member” as well. This shift is from GUEST to HOST in the way they think about involvement at DCV. Hosts are not only here to receive, but to give as well. This is evidenced by movement in a number of areas (some which may be clearly understood and some which may not):
These are not dutiful obligations that should be checked off the list. Rather, they are outward expressions of a growing affection for Jesus and His church.
