Are you excited to work with a leadership team to help more people experience transforming relationships through Jesus Christ?

This Is Us We are not a traditional church. Our goal is to provide opportunities and environments for people to worship Jesus, learn and grow in spiritual development, and serve outside the walls of our building. We want to maintain a culture where people of all types feel expected and accepted. We are growing and attracting a lot of young families. We are Gospel-focused and mission-minded at both local and international levels.
Here is what we strive to do: Love Differently | We love ALL through our words, our actions, and our attitudes. Celebrate Stories | We celebrate God's big story and every individual story He is writing. Live Real | We are honest about who we are so that God can transform us. Think Legacy | We live our faith out loud to make an impact on generations to come. We Grow | We are committed to spiritual growth, both personally and collectively.
We want to meet people where they are and lead them to where God wants them to be. We believe that as we live out these values, we help more people experience the transformational power of Jesus Christ.
