Partners In Ministry

We have 5 Partner Churches and 10 Ministries on Campus.

We function as a family of churches. We gather for joint worship at least twice a year. We often have joint baptism services. We work together on outreach initiatives. We hope to bring our children and youth together more frequently in the future.
