We are a COMMUNITY; we are NOT a commune and we are NOT a cult.Right now we are building our online community. Later we will build real-world communities, as they grow out of the local 3CCC Fellowship Groups established by online members in their local area.
We are NOT a commune because we believe in and promote personal home ownership.
We are NOT a cult because our community government is modeled on that of the United States Constitutional Republic (as originally conceived and established) making it impossible that one leader and their minions could seize control.
What is our mission?
mission is to AWAKEN, TRANSFORM and GIVE.
1]We help AWAKEN others to the
peace, joy and empowerment that comes through connecting to God's Holy Spirit
2]We TRANSFORM our
lives, inside through daily renewing of our mind and outside through the
building of our community.
3]We GIVE to others by creating
a nurturing community environment , one that promotes individual dreams and
wholesome, debt free families.

What is: "Community 3.0"?
1]Community 3.0 is first and foremost a hybridization of Community 1.0 (traditional communities) and Community 2.0 (online communities built around Web 2.0 social and collaborative applications). Community 3.0 communities utilize this hybrid synergy to build their online community first, utilizing its capacity to sort members according to shared values, then creating collaborative projects for the purpose of building their own real-world Community 3.0 community. One of the most important shared values will be adherance to these ten Community 3.0 conditions;
2]You choose your neighbors, share
community land, own your home;
3]Shared spiritual values that lead to a
quiet, peaceful, meditative lifestyle;
4]Shared love of healthy lifestyles:
natural food, exercise, alternativemedicine;
5]Shared love and respect for the environment and "Green" building methods. This translates practically into sustainable land use plans and 100% LEED
Certified buildings. Every member of any Community 3.0 community shall agree, in writing, to build their home or any community owned building according to some level of LEED
Certified specification (the higher the better);
6]All those who choose to live in a Community 3.0 community must
agree to be pre-screened, including a criminal background check;
7]100% Kid-Safe community environment with
the best quality daycare;
8]Checks and balances on internal governance
so no one person or group can take control economically or politically;
9]Every community member becomes part-owner
of the community prior to moving there (with provisions for poorer people to
earn ownership through sweat equity);
When the community outgrows its environment, we divide and build another community, thereby maintaining the quality of life associated with Community 3.0. In the book "The Tipping Point", author Gladwell documents that all Hutterite communities and all military fighting units max out at about 150 people. Beyond that number groups form clans and unity breaks down.
A Brief Word About 3Circles Church Commmunities
We're so different from "Church" we almost didn't use the word.
And we had to invent "Community 3.0" because what we offer the world is so unique.
Thirty-four years ago I was given a vision of what you're about to discover, a vision I am sharing with the world for the first time.
Meditative prayer & planning undergirds everything we do... the time is NOW!
This is a mission of love, to gather & establish caring communities. It is a call to principled living and meditative renewal, the kind that
leads inevitably to greater love and unity.
Please understand, we charge a membership fee because we provide great value,
And, to be perfectly honest, because we need you.
Help us build a new and better world... One community at a time!!
