In 1990, a group of innovators set out to create a different type of church for the 757 area of Virginia – a church that wasn’t just for church people. They wanted to create an environment where people could “come as they are” and connect with God. An environment where people would be excited to invite their friends. A place where people could grow and take next steps in their relationship with God.
Our vision is to start where people are and see them connect with God.
Over the years, we’ve seen God do more than we could have ever dreamed or imagined with that vision! We’ve seen literally hundreds of people experience life change. We’ve seen our connect groups become a place of real-life community. We’ve seen God lead us to be for families in new and fresh ways in our children and student ministries. We’ve seen God bring in and send out hundreds of military personnel and families who shared our vision while in the 757 and are now all over the world. We’ve seen God use our church to plant other churches in the 757. We’ve seen teams sent to share the Good News message of Jesus internationally and especially in Nicaragua. And we’ve seen God challenge our church to love our “actual” neighbors as ourselves in whatever neighborhood He’s placed us.
