We see church as a beautifully diverse group of people coming together to lift up Jesus, worship our Father God, hear from the Holy Spirit and grow as disciples in the Word. Our heart is to reach the lost with the message of the Gospel and to see strong believers equipped, confident in who they are in Christ. The local church is God’s idea. We are excited to provide a place of growth and fellowship for the Philly area as well as a base from which we can reach our generation around the world.
OUR PASTORS Pastors Mike & Steph are passionate about people and are committed to walking out the will of God for their lives.

They are a blended family with four older kids, two younger kids together, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two handsome grandsons.
