About Pathfinder Church:

At Pathfinder, you will find imperfect people in pursuit of a Whole Life.

Most People are Unaware that Jesus Spoke into EVERY Area of Our Lives.

Unfortunately, many people compartmentalize Jesus and their faith into one facet of life. When we do that, we miss out on the transformational insight that Jesus laid out for a whole life.

Jesus didn't come only to get us into heaven someday, but he came to bring us to a whole, full life, that begins today and onto eternity.

He revealed that a whole life is built through six key areas–areas in every part of our lives where we can grow and find greater wholeness.

Growth isn't easy. It takes intention.
Are you ready for the challenge?
