Giving Our Lives

Give to a specific mission trip or an individual going on a trip

Our church strategy is built around three objectives. Gathering our hearts (worship); Growing our souls (growth); and Giving our lives (service). Giving our lives is the missional dimension of our church which includes prayer, volunteering, giving, service, and missions.

We desire to see the gospel advanced throughout the city, our nation and the world.

We are committed to doing three things through our mission endeavors:

  • First, making disciples by planting churches in global cities.
  • Second, carrying the name of Jesus to nearly 3 billion unreached people.
  • Third, doing justice in dark places.
