the Name

A place where we are known, loved, and connected in a counter-cultural community. As a "Town," we hope to be a place of authentic community. This is a place where you can belong and be known.

You read it as ‘and', but the symbol is a cross. Its presence in the middle of our name symbolizes the centrality of the good news of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection in all we are and do. We believe Your experience of the gospel of Christ Christ is central to experiencing abundant life in the way of Jesus.

Our call is to sow the story of the Gospel where we live and work and serve, trusting God will grow His Kingdom across our city and beyond. The field is your gym, coffee shop, workplace, and school- the spaces you occupy daily.


Our history informs our present, we recognize God’s faithfulness in the past as we worshiped, ministered in our city, planted churches, sent missionaries globally and trained up generation after generation of apprentices of Jesus.
