Getting Started

For years we have been asking how we can better share our skills and resources to those who need it most in our communities. As the church began, those who believed had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. (Acts 2:44-45)

A1:8 Commons is a database of needs, skills, and resources. To get started create a profile.

How This Works

Needs, resources, and skills are posted and moderated by trusted A1:8 leaders

A1:8 has assembled a team of ministry leaders and local organization partners who will post needs on behalf of people within their communities. We restrict posting access in order to ensure the quality and accuracy of the information posted to this site and to prevent abuse and redundancy.

You can view opportunities and engage as needed/possible

While the broad NCC community (and whole wide world) can view these listings, only approved users can actively engage in meeting needs or claiming resources.

All user accounts are review/subject to approval by A1:8 moderators.

Manage your profile to receive only the email notifications you want to receive

We recognize that as the platform grows, receiving all updates may become overwhelming so we built in functionality to allow you to choose which types of opportunities you are most interested in.

Huzzah! Needs are met efficiently and a resource inventory grows

With multiple locations, a hundred small groups, and dozens of ministries, keeping track of opportunities to meet real and personal needs is a big job. This tool will help us streamline care and response, while also providing data to enable us to celebrate success and share testimony.
