How did your network start?
For the past 25 years there have been waves of collaboration within the churches of Boulder County. Within the past decade the biggest collaborative movement was Sharefest; a countywide service project done by area churches on behalf of the local school district, human service agencies and impoverished families. Sharefest ended in 2010, but much of the current collaborative efforts have come from the good will established within the community through this event.
What are you focused on now?
Within Boulder County there are a number of current collaborative efforts. Another important aspect to note is there is a strong sense of camaraderie and friendship within the ministry leaders. We are not simply collaborating; we are getting to know one another. We are not just talking ministry; we are sharing life.
