We’re passionate about bringing the message of Jesus to the beautiful city of Kelowna. This place is brimming with potential for both human flourishing and human idolatry – we’re talking about some serious spiritual battlegrounds! But we’re determined to see this culture redeemed and restored through the power of the gospel.
Our hearts are set on seeing people set free from all the things that hold us back – religion, brokenness, addiction, bad relationships, and loneliness. You name it. We want to see folks living in true freedom, unencumbered by all the baggage that weighs us down.
We're often asked why we chose to start a church in Kelowna, and the truth is, there are countless reasons why - 100,000, to be exact.
We believe there are 100,000 people in our city, who don’t know Jesus. We desire to make Jesus known in Kelowna. Would you join the movement?
We are passionate about planting a church because we want to be true to the great commission.
Consider these facts:
“1. New Churches Best Reach New Generations, New Residents, and New People Groups
First, younger adults have always been disproportionately found in newer congregations. Long-established congregations develop traditions such as time of worship, length of service, level of emotional responsiveness, sermon topics, leadership style, emotional atmosphere, and thousands of other tiny customs and mores. These traditions reflect the sensibilities of longtime leaders from the older generations who have the influence and money to control church life. The automatic maintenance of such habits does not reach younger generations effectively.
2. New Churches Best Reach the Unchurched—Period
Dozens of denominational studies have confirmed that the average new church gains most of its new members (60–80 percent) from the ranks of people who are not attending any worshiping body, while churches over ten to fifteen years of age gain 80–90 percent of new members by transfer from other congregations. This means the average new congregation will bring six to eight times more new people into the life of the body of Christ than an older congregation of the same size.”
