We are Commission

Overview

Commission is an international family of churches united by a shared passion for Jesus and His mission, and a clear vision to see thousands of lives transformed through hundreds of churches in tens of nations.

We achieve this by seeking to build and plant local churches that are subject to God’s word and responsive to His Spirit.

  • Churches where grace is not only preached but is experienced and demonstrated.
  • Churches where the gifts of the Spirit are fully expressed and where relationships are genuine and deep.
  • Churches that serve their local communities but are also engaged in God’s global mission.

Commission is led by Guy Miller with teams of leaders and is enthusiastically part of the wider Newfrontiers family of churches.

Our vision

God has given us a huge vision …

To see thousands of lives transformed, through hundreds of churches, in tens of nations.

Find out more in our Values Booklet, ‘Who We Are‘.

SURE Strategy

Outlining the vision is one thing … getting there is another.  With such a big vision we had to think about how to get there, which led to the introduction of our SURE strategy.

SEND

Adventure together to transform the world

UNIFY

Moving forwards together as one

RELEASE

Empowering everyone for influence everywhere

EQUIP

Enabling everyone to think and live like Jesus
During 2017, four teams regularly met together to develop work plans for each part of SURE. After this stage, the plans were carefully put together into 10 similar groups of work, to become teams of their own called transformation teams … this is where it gets exciting! Real progress has been made towards our vision, but it’s time to move things along even more.

God has been calling us, again and again, to scale up what we’re doing, and to enlarge our faith for all that He can do amongst us.

A lot of this sounds very strategic, and it is, but we have also heard God speak powerfully to us as a family of churches. These prophetic words have really shaped the way we’ve done things and that has propelled us forwards on this exciting adventure. Our transformation teams are all about including the whole family as we fulfil this vision together.

Leadership Teams

Guy Miller is supported by a number of amazing men and women who help to lead and facilitate everything that goes on across Commission. Many churches release people to serve Commission in a variety of roles, and we are so grateful for the time that people give to seeing our church family grow across the nations we are involved in.

Guy splits his time between London (Westminster Chapel) and Bournemouth and regularly travels in his role as Apostolic lead for Commission.
