OUR STORY

 

In August 2018, a team of recent graduates and long-time college ministry staff moved from California, with the vision of establishing a Christ-centered, biblical community in Evanston, Illinois. For many of us, college was a momentous and decisive time: Jesus’ all-consuming call grabbed ahold of our hearts as we experienced the power of God’s word and the richness of a biblical Christian community. It’s an experience we want to replicate for others: so we plant churches in college towns and strive to live lives of loving, sacrificial ministry.


 

OUR MISSION

 

An Acts 2 Church in Every College Town. There’s an old hymn that goes, “The church is not a building/ the church is not a steeple / the church is not a resting place / the church is a people.” That’s the church that Jesus established, the church that the Bible describes in Acts 2:42-47: not a physical building, but a family of people who have been captivated by Christ, striving to share God’s love and preach the Good News: the old story about the Son of God who died for our sins, rose from the dead, and is still transforming people’s lives today.
