GO Center Church Vitality Weekend @ HVPC
Registration is now closed:
Finding who's missing & bringing them home!
A special weekend event on the topic of Church Revitalization
The GO Center is a ministry for missional vitalization and revitalization in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC) through training, coaching, consulting, and assessment.
Coordinated church revitalization efforts in the EPC are facilitated by the GO Center and the Church Revitalization Task Force under the leadership of Dr. Ken Priddy. The GO Center’s focus is the development of missional churches that are led by missional pastors and leaders. This development is driven by training, consulting, and coaching that is provided by the GO Center team.
Your church wants to reach people with the lifesaving message of Jesus. Your church wants to find who’s missing from the family of God and bring them home. The GO Center is called to help your church do just that and we have the tools and people to make it happen.
The GO Center objectives are:
- To equip missional pastors and missional leaders to lead missional congregations.
- To equip Christian business owners, business executives and working people to see their places of business as mission fields, thinking and acting like winsome workplace missionaries.
- To equip faith-based nonprofit leaders to complete their missions and expand their service capacity.
If you have any questions about the weekend event, please contact the HVPC Church Office (office@HVPC.org; 215-947-5500).

G.O.1: Building Your Church’s Great Commission Matrix is the revitalization entry point that jump-starts a church toward significant gains in vitality. This vitality is evidenced by increased health, growth and multiplication as a church’s ministries are aligned with the Great Commission, an alignment that moves ministry outward into the community, the “GO” element of the Great Commission. The most significant tool presented in G.O.1 is the Great Commission Matrix, an approach to ministry that positions the church to work through its congregation to reach its community. Positioning the ministry of the church in this way promotes numerical growth by conversion, sorely lacking in today’s typical church. The cry of G.O.1 is Ready, Fire, Aim. The idea is to avoid the trap of spending too much time developing vision and strategy before moving onto the mission field of ministry. G.O.1 commits at the very beginning to Great Commission Vision and Great Commission Strategy. Simply stated, “What is our Vision? Our Vision is to go and make disciples. What is our Strategy? Our strategy is actually to go.” Don’t spend months planning to reach the community. JUST GO!!!
