We are passionate about "Going Deeper" with our God, in our relationships, within our schools, and throughout our community.
Our VisionLuke 5 "Going into the Deep!” We’re excited about pursing a deep, impactful relationship with our Heavenly Father. We seek the Lord through intentional times of prayer, teaching, and ministry together.
Our PurposeMatthew 13 “We engage purposefully in sowing seeds in the lives of our young people in GOOD SOIL!” We believe that the extravagant love of God is for everyone. Our desire is to sow seeds of love, and Gods Word into the lives of those we come into contact with daily.
Our CharacterMatthew 5:37 "We are committed to be who we say we are in Jesus, doing what we say we will do!” Jesus called all of his followers to “Be Holy as I am Holy”. With this in mind we pursue the gifts and indwelling of the Holy Spirit in our lives both individually and collectively, and challenge ourselves to live lives of integrity and character, mirroring that of Jesus Christ
