This action research project was a first step toward integrating new people into North Park Worship Centre. Based on research into biblical principles, social science findings, and interviews with integration pastors, the project participants were invited into the integration process to determine if this approach would develop the experience of belonging. Qualitative research was conducted, including data collection through surveys, ethnographic observation, and personal reflection. The component of belonging was the area of focus in this study. The outcome of the project was that participants experienced a sense of belonging and were positioned for integration into the wider church community.
