That’s the vision. That’s the only way we’ll ever see justice, mercy, and humility come true. And that is what this website is all about. In a world riddled with confusion, oppression, fear, and hatred, there really is hope – in the words, power, and character of Jesus.

Today, we continue to champion the ways of Jesus as the original disciples did who abandoned earthly treasures to follow him. I am grateful for this church, a family of revolutionary disciples I could have only written down as a dream on that napkin.
