Why We Exist
Movement Church exists to make disciples that are multiplying disciples. A simpler way of saying this is that we are a church that is passionate about following Jesus and walking alongside others as they discover what it means to follow Jesus. We believe the best way to accomplish multiplying disciples is through the planting of churches.
Movement Church is growing to be one church with many locations. We refer to each location we meet at as an outpost church. In military terms, an outpost is defined as a security detachment dispatched by a main body of troops to a designated area. It is also defined as an outlying or frontier settlement. As we focus on planting churches throughout our area, we believe the Lord is showing us that one effective way to accomplish this is to plant churches that can launch in public spaces, with a small number of people and limited resources in order that it might gain ground in the territory in which it is located. Outpost churches will also serve as a resource hub for the community in which it is located. We are anticipating these resources will address specific felt needs within the community such as loneliness, desire for connection with others, job loss, emotional and family support, food distribution, school support such as supplies and tutoring, and summer programs for kids.
We believe every church should have a community focus and impact, that is why every outpost gathering is centered on being gathered and sent. As we gather in public spaces (like coffee shops and community centers) we gather to worship and grow in discipleship and we are sent as we move into our community to serve and connect with the world around us.
We are currently gathering in two locations - check out where we are below.
