Our Purpose

To fulfill the Great Commission by partnering with and empowering church leaders to develop healthy, growing Christians and churches; to strengthen and network ministry teams; and to effectively reach spiritual seekers in our communities and around the world.



Bringing the hope of Jesus to our communities.


Authentic Faith

The Bible is God's Word and must be relevantly communicated and practically applied in daily life.

Passion for Spiritual Seekers

The centerpiece of all that we do is reaching the unchurched and reconciling them to the Father God, through His Son, Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Healthy Relationships

The foundation to a vital, wholesome life and ministry is having healthy relationships with God and others.

Empowering Leaders

The effectiveness of ministry is enhanced as we equip, empower, network and resource leaders.

Serving Churches

The local churches are the focus of our service as we partner with and encourage them, respecting and celebrating their diversity.
