We are a family of churches working together to proclaim the Gospel, make disciples, and plant churches.

Learn MoreJoin the Mission

We work together for Gospel-centered renewal, providing leaders with relationship and resourcing as we follow the way of Jesus.

We’re committed to being a part of something bigger than just one church. We’re a family, consisting of Churches across national and denominational borders.

Together, we’re committed to the renewal of all things through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe the best way to do this is through providing relationships that will help disciples of Christ serve together, and resources that will help disciples serve well.
