I’m New

Our Story

We’re a group of Jesus followers that are spread across the greater Kansas City area. While we’re diverse, we share a passion to help everyone to know and follow Jesus Christ. Our weekend services are meant to draw people towards God and our small group gatherings are designed to foster authentic relationships.

Kansas City is our home but we consider the world our neighborhood as we partner globally with over 700 churches in the International Churches of Christ

Our Heart

With so much hurt and injustice in our world, it’s clear to see that something needs to be done. As Jesus followers, we believe that together we can make a difference both in our community, as well as around the world. Our prayer is that you would join us to make a difference in the lives of others.
