One of the main ideas behind the distributed church is that each network is connected to a Hub or Resource Center (http://distributedchurch.com/field-guide/elementsofnetwork/). Below are some resources that might help your members beyond your church.
Most of what you will encounter will fall in the realm of personal ministry. But sometimes, people need more help. Know when to leverage the power of the network by utilizing these resources when needed.
