Community Life Ministry

"Life is better in community. The Christian life is not meant to be lived alone. We are created for community, fashioned for fellowship and formed for a family, and none of us can fulfill God’s purposes by ourselves.” – Rick Warren

The Community Life Ministry exists to impact and transform lives by connecting people to God and people to people. Our desire is to provide persons with an opportunity to connect in three ways…

  • Upward Connection with God
  • Outward Connection with our Neighbors
  • Inward connection with one another


Encourage the personal growth and personal impact of persons through strategic community engagement.


Promote lifestyle evangelism through continuous community engagement that demonstrates love and care for the community.


Actively participate and partner with, organizations and other ministries that promote the wellbeing of the community and demonstrate justice and mercy.
