E17 Network was borne out of our own experiences as a struggling fellowship. We were in a transition phase. We were looking for those who would be willing to partner with us and assist us in overcoming a number of ministry obstacles. Instead, we were encouraged to either merge with another body or to donate our assets to another church, including our building. But we KNEW that God still has a mission for us that is unique and Kingdom-focused. Through much prayer, consultation of the Scriptures and discussion, we realized that our mission is to help other churches facing their own existential challenges.
E17 is shorthand for Exodus 17. The biblical picture in this chapter of Scripture is of Aaron and Hur holding up Moses’ hands so that Israel would be victorious over their enemy, the Amalekites. Interlink Fellowship and our ministry partners stand ready and able to act as Aarons and Hurs for churches engaged in their own battles. We desire to bless other fellowships, regardless of size, location, racial makeup, or denomination.
