Authentic Relationships • Genuine Community • Reflecting Christ

We strive to be a place where relationships are strengthened. We strive to be people who authentically care about others in the places that we work and serve. We strive to be a genuine community and to be genuine in the communities where God has placed us. Together we strive to encourage each other to draw closer to the God who created each of us in order that we might become the people He created us to be.

We don’t claim to be all that—always authentic, always genuine, and a vivid reflection of Jesus Christ—but we believe it is worthy of our pursuit. And we would welcome you to join us on that journey.
