Together we are a community of believers. What does that mean, the word community? We believe that together in fellowship we grow closer to God and one another. The bible speaks about iron sharpening iron. We believe that together we grow stronger. We are a community of believers. 

We highly value our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately grow closer to God. We value the word of God, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look to extend grace to all of the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.

We are a church who...

CONNECTs with others

Cultivating meaningful relationships is one of our top priorites.  Jump into a small group or stay for Sunday School.  You can also follow us on social media for other connection events.

GROWs in Christ

Growth in one's personal walk with Christ is vital for a flourishing faith.  Our Sunday morning worship time is a great place to sing God's praise and hear Bible based messages that help you grow your faith.

LAUNCHes into service

Connecting with others and growing in your walk with Christ allows you to launch into Jesus' will for you you: sharing His love with others.


Christopher Garrow

Lead Pastor

Chris has done some stuff that humans seem to think is important, he has a Doctorate in Ministry and a few of them other seminary degrees. He’s also been in vocational ministry in positions like Worship Pastor, Associate Pastor, Teaching Pastor, blah, blah blah….

None of that really matters, the one thing that Chris really has going for him is radical trust in the Gospel of Jesus.  Chris holds to the truth that while we were far from God, sinners, the worst of sinners, that God displayed his love for us by sending his son Jesus as the atoning sacrifice for our sins.  

He’s married to the most beautiful woman in the world, or at least he thinks so!  They have 6 amazing children.  As a family, they enjoy and love the Bride of Jesus, all kinds of food, Star Wars, Legos, and all things pink or purple.

They have been married ten years and have four children: Eden, Titus, Micah, and Judah. Mark enjoys board games, sports, getting into creation, and relationships. He has a passion for leading teens to Christ and helping these teens grow in Him.
