Meet Our Pastor

As a “Big Tent” church, we believe that not every faith community is for everyone. Each of us needs to find that place and people that feel like home. Our greatest hope is that you find happiness and joy, whether that be with us or some other place of blessing.

We think that the best way to find that home is to really try us out, meet the pastor to see if he’s your flavor, come to worship to see if it fills your soul, meet a bunch of us to see if we click, and then notice if your life is changing. We never pressure anyone about joining, but we do receive new folks who think this will be their home twice a year.

At the center of the Christian life is a commitment to justice in the service of the hungry, poor, sick and homeless. Each of us have our unique calling. Our Justice and Service Ministries are always evolving to match our gifts with the needs of our neighbors.

Every Sunday morning we gather to worship God with song, prayer, reflection and community. It sounds like a strange thing to do, but this is what defines us as God’s people in this place.
