As people from all over the world choose our community as their home, we are building a church they can call home. Through International Ministry Interns we are cultivating a church to reach across cultures to do just that. As Interns learn and grow, our church family is growing in relationships, care, and understanding of other cultures we are called to reach.
"We are building a community where interns prepare for ministry, followers of Jesus learn to love others from across
the globe living right across the street."
