Art of Neighboring Story

A few years ago, twenty-one churches in Arvada, Colorado united to start a neighboring movement in our community. We kept things simple and challenged the people in our congregations to take the next small step with their literal neighbors. The movement has spread, and to date over 1,000 churches are using the Art of Neighboring resources.
