In their impactful book, The Trellis and the VineColin Marshall and Tony Payne address crucial questions in the life of the local church. Through the metaphor of a trellis and a vine, one of the primary ways we fulfill our mission to make disciples at Fairview is through the trellis of Life Groups. Here, we seek to cultivate an environment where Christians grow in relation to God and to one another. Life Groups function as the primary vehicle for Fairview to prayerfully proclaim God’s Word to one another and the primary touch point where non-Christians experience the gospel lived out and proclaimed.
