We exist to welcome people to faith; equip people with a faith that works in real life; and send us in service into the world in Jesus’ name. Through ongoing, open-group Bible studies, we hope to provide foundational discipleship and a lab environment to practice leadership and ministry skills. Every stage of discipleship matters to the development and maintenance of a mature faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.
