Take your next missional step in your city and the surrounding area.

our dream

Empowering and equipping Fearless Followers to form relationships that bring Jesus’ transformation in our city.

Why missions?

To bring Jesus’ love, hope, and mercy to your area of influence

Local and regional missional initiatives work with partners where we live, work, and play to provide you with your next step in reaching others with the love and hope of Jesus and restoring what’s broken in the world around us.

We work with many partners to reach people through church planting, pastoral training, child sponsorships and missions trips. We work to restore what’s broken through foster care and adoption, mentoring, recovery programs and life-skills training.

There’s plenty of opportunity for every follower of Jesus to engage missionally.

Mission is about relationships – reaching others with love and hope of Jesus.  Here’s a great opportunity for you to live missionally; check out the Bridge BBQ trailer and enjoy getting to know your neighbors.  This “tool” can be a bridge to introduce them to Jesus.

Saved to Share

Part of our calling as Christ followers is to Share the good news that Saved us. On Saturday, March 26, we have a great opportunity to live that out locally in our community. The event is called Saved to Share. Teams of fearless followers will be sent to local coffee shops where we will bless our community with free coffee and invite them into conversations about the good news of the gospel story. Evangelism training will be on Sunday, March 20 after 2nd service.
