Our Story

How this whole thing started

In spring 2002, a handful of people started meeting together in Pastor Brian and Diane's living room to dream, pray, and plan about starting a new church in the region we grew up in and love, that would embody and express the life-changing Gospel message in fresh and relevant ways.

We had no idea of the roller-coaster ride we were in for!  Planting a church is not an easy endeavor!  But God has graciously provided for our every need, each step of the way... and in the process He's built up an amazing community of people who love God and love people - passionately and authentically... sometimes meeting in a living room, other times in school auditorium... we even had a short stint at the Carmel movie theater!

Our passion today is the same as it was on day 1- to help people cultivate growing relationships - with God, with each other, and the world around them!
