We are striving daily to be more Christ-like, sensitive to God's leading, seeking to do His will and working to strengthen our love for one another as we go about our daily lives. We consider ourselves less than God would have us be. However, somewhere in each of us is the person God made us to be. Join us as we strive to be more like Jesus.

Our mission is to be Jesus' disciples-- that is to be His students by following Him daily as our Teacher.

We believe it is possible to become more like Jesus in an atmosphere that is filled with love and unity.

  • "Thanks!"

    Believe it or not I have a parent already wanting to know the date of JumpStart 2016. Their daughter couldn't come last year because of a sports conflict. Her Dad is a coach. I think he is actually going to schedule sports around JumpStart!!! The way you guys put on JS really is something special for the kids (and adults too). Thanks for all you do for His Kingdom!

  • "A Touchstone!"

    JumpStart is an annual touchstone for young Jesus followers all over our area. It brings us back together, it focuses our attentions and fills us up for the approaching school year. The love that the staff, volunteers, speakers and entertainers pour into the event has a forever impact on the Kingdom of God. It is not to be missed!!!
