What Will We do?
Starting new churches is the most effective way to reach new people. So, we're doing everything we can to pour gas on that fire!
Our first 'daughter' church, Awaken Church was born Feb, 2014! Awaken has grown and welcomed many new faces since then. Join us in praying for God's favor as they creatively lead people into the awakening that Jesus brings. Awaken meets Sundays at 10:30am at Candlelight Academy, 209 E Sessoms Ave, Lake Wales, FL 33853. Stop in and check them out if you're in Polk County!
Our second 'daughter' church, Hope Community Church, launched on Feb 12, 2017! Please pray for pastor Don Winters, his wife Barb, and their team, as they seek to bring the hope of Jesus Christ to their community. Hope meets Sundays at 10am at Wildwood Elementary School,
300 Huey St, Wildwood, FL 34785
Church Planting Training and Opportunities
We are affiliated with Converge Worldwide. In our opinion, this is one of the best organizations in the nation for training and equipping church planters who are interested in starting missional churches.
If you have an interest in a church planting internship, especially if you are considering the state of Florida, email our Lead Pastor Kendal Anderson.
