The Value of Community based on Acts 2

The Value of…Community

When you think about community, who first comes to mind? Is it the faith community you’re connected to? Or do you think about a group of friends or the people you live near?

In the second episode in this series, “The Value of…” we explore the value of community.


“The VALUE of…” is podcast series exploring what is important to Christ-centered leaders. Values are more than things we profess. Values are the essential elements that guide a leader’s decisions and actions. They help teams make decisions and know what is important.

Across the next several episodes we’ll dive into questions like:

  • Why are values important? 
  • What does living into our values look like (and why it’s important)?  
  • What are examples of transformational ministries that can result? 
  • And what adaptive leadership challenges emerge when you’re living and leading from your values.


This week we’re looking at the value of community. Acts 2:42-47 sets the stage for the conversation. Then explore the adaptive leadership challenges that can emerge when you’re seeking to focus on community. Specifically, we’ll look at how to navigate the adaptive leadership challenges. 

Finally, explore several questions that connect to the church’s role in disciple-making and being a community of faith.
