Gospel Communities

Through looking at who Jesus is and why he came and how he carried out His mission, we believe that life change happens in the context of relationships that are centered around Jesus’ mission in our world. Based on this belief, Missio Dei exists as a church of Gospel Communities. It’s through these groups of 10-20 people doing life together and abiding by Jesus teachings, we are joining God as He makes all things new and seeing lives change as we go. These groups of 10-20 people meet in homes throughout the city joining God to make all things new. It is here we fully embrace our new identity in Christ.

We believe that sustained life-change happens within the context of community. And so in keeping with who JESUS is, why HE came, and how HE carried out HIS mission, Missio Dei exists as a church of gospel communities. It's through these groups of 10-15 people, meeting in homes during the week throughout the city, that we are joining GOD as HE makes all things new. Our dream is to be missional outposts in the midst of where we live and play as we experience the power of the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST together.

Spiritual Culture

We focus on living sacrificially for one another and how that can impact our neighborhoods and city. We’re highly relational in that we often focus on our own relationship building & fellowship over structured studies and disciplines. At the same time, our commitment to growing in our faith is what drives the relationship-building. Every week: expect a good meal and good conversation. Some weeks: we’ll take a more structured dive into a recent sermon or book, spending time in discussion, asking meaningful questions, or in prayer.

Current Demographic

Beautiful, diverse mix of families, couples, and singles, all of various ages. We’re also distinctly diverse in terms of our nationalities, with folks who grew up in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America & Central America. We love having the vast range in ages, backgrounds, and life stages, and the varied perspectives that range brings to our family.

Spiritual Culture

Our GC is a close knit, family of believers that are continually growing and learning what it means to walk through life in Christ both personally and collectively. We daily seek to love on one another as sisters and brothers in Christ in our vulnerabilities, brokenness, joys, and peace. As a family we share in the brokenness of the world around us as well as praise and worship the glory of God’s greatness throughout the week.

Current Demographic

Our age ranges from early twenties to early thirties comprised of a nearly equal balance of singles and married couples
