Your Church on Mission
The local church is the hope of the world. Last year we committed to helping plant and launch local churches committed to reaching others with the good news of Christ. This year we were able to help two church plants.

along with a group of churches from Sequoyah county who collectively gave $25,000 to help construct their facility.
Relief and Restoration
Beyond what happens in our personal lives and church experiences, sharing the love of Christ means bringing help and hope to people in need. We partner with community organizations, local churches, and focus on opportunities that span the globe.
This Spring, we partnered with Catholic Charities which serves over
each month, to help provide a $5000 grant for a new storage facility so they can serve even more families.
This year, we partnered with Convoy of Hope to provide shoes for
in two local elementary schools.
Campus Development & Digital Missions
Every week God is changing lives. Every hand that is raised, every story shared, every baptism celebrated is a result of God using people in their local campus and community.
This year we completed Phase 1 of our remodel for LifeKids helping to maximize every inch of space in our facility adding
200 square feet
