We have seen time and time again that God is at work in this neighborhood. However, there is no community of people that we have found who have covenented themselves to joining God's work and pursuing God's dream in this neighborhood; making disciples of Jesus, and showing themselves to be a public witness of the gospel. In other words, there is not a church.
Located in the South Western edge of the City of Seattle, South Park has a rich history of community resilience and entrepreneurial spirit as a response to divestment and neglect from the city of Seattle. While this divestment...

For over a hundred years the Christian Reformed Church has had a local presence in the Roosevelt Park and Black Hills neighborhoods of SW Grand Rapids. As of last summer when Roosevelt Park CRC closed its doors to the local community, that presence was gone. However, God has placed a group of ministry leaders who have lived in the neighborhoods for well over a decade. This group of leaders has a deep passion for the people of the community and their access to a healthy, Gospel centered Church whose foundation is rooted in Reformed Theology.
The mission of Southwest Community Church...

In September 2012, Square Inch Houston started as a "house church" with a small team of mission-minded people. As a church, we gathered on Saturdays around the rhythms of worship to God, growth as a community, and service to our neighborhood and city.
In June 2014, our community fell in love with Houston's historic Third Ward, and decided to become part of the story of transformation we believed God was writing there. With Third Ward as our learning community, we would shift our strategy from establishing a traditional church, to establishing networks of relationships for the...
Florida, Eastern USAKris Vos
Over 50,000 new residents move to South Florida every year, but a statistic like this does not tell the full story of the diversity in ethnicity, age, spirituality and income of the people of South Florida. In the middle of this tremendous growth lies the city of Lake Worth. It is an old city that, in spite of its growth, still has a small town feel. In the middle of this unique area was a struggling church formerly called Lake Worth Christian Reformed Church (CRC).
Like many of the churches near downtown Lake Worth, it was struggling. As the community changed and grew, the...

We are a small but multi-ethnic Reformed church dedicated to worshipping God with all nations in Upstate New York. As a Reformed church, we will have the honor of connecting people in Syracuse to God, Jesus Christ, and to one another in a loving and caring setting. It will be our mission to empower our community to become disciples of Jesus Christ by learning the gospel and sharing His love.
Grace, Gospel, Community, Reformed, and Worship: These are the cornerstones behind Syracuse Grace CRC, and we will approach each day with these in mind.

Six years ago, when Kyle and Stephanie moved to Oakland, CA, one of the most racially and economically diverse cities in the country, they knew God was calling them to plant a multi-ethnic church. They just didn't know how God intended to do that through them.
In June 2018, their mostly white downtown church plant comprised of young professionals newer to Oakland merged with a church planted by Bernard Emerson and his wife Kim--a multigenerational black church plant comprised of Oakland locals. God wove these churches together to create a multicultural, multigenerational,...

We are a church for people who don't go to church. We are a community with Jesus at our core and called to follow him and show him through our words and actions to our community. We are an embedded church, strategically working alongside those we are called to share Jesus with, in programs of the city that they are already involved in -- sports, music, service, neighbourhood -- rather than setting up church-based programs that we call people into. We direct our best energies and most fervent prayers toward fostering the development of a discipleship movement out of which Jesus will (...

At the Caledonia Gathering we have made it our mission in life to invite people to learn about the life and love of Jesus and to learn to live and love like him. We do this in the context of house gatherings that meet together for worship at EB Coffee and Pub. Whether you are brand new to Jesus, you learned about him as a child or are a life long follower - we’d love to have you join us.
House Gatherings are like extended families that live a rhythm of life together thats worth being invited into. That rhythm includes being an invitational people; whether thats inviting people...
Rhode Island, Eastern USAJoseph Paravisini
We are a simple expression of church beginning in the Southside of Providence, Rhode Island. We are an extended family that exists to take seriously the ancient words and mission of Jesus in a modern and changing world.
What makes us different is our approach to the word Church. We understand the historical movement of Jesus to be less about buildings and events to attend, institutions or rituals, or even products or services to consume – and more about a people to be, a process, and a life to live.
We started when we began asking the simple (but deeply loaded and dangerous...
