Our Vision

We are an informal and growing network of Christ-centered intentional communities that strive to support and inspire one another to live more faithfully and to bear witness more fully to God’s kingdom here on earth.

Our Purpose

  • Nurturing—We provide opportunity for established communities to nurture and counsel younger communities as they embark on the venture of sharing life together in Christ.

  • Networking—We help communities of Jesus followers to connect and build relationships with one another.

  • Facilitating—We offer opportunities to learn about what it takes to form, live and grow in Christian community.

Bedford has helped accomplish over 200 of its partners’ major conservation goals. They inspire everyone to care for the planet.

What We do

  • Gatherings—We host a variety of retreats and gatherings that bring individuals and communities face-to-face together around issues of common concern.

  • Mentoring—We make “visitations,” upon request, in which teams of 2-3 people visit other communities for the purpose of helping to strengthen and deepen their common life together.

  • Connecting—Through our website and through social media we provide tools to inspire, inform, teach and connect communities.
