Who We Are

We believe in equipping and empowering you to be on mission for God

We have over 40 churches located across 11 countries around the world.  We believe that significant ministry flows from significant relationships.

Whether you have been called to education, healthcare, business, arts, media, government, family or church, we want to equip you to extend the Kingdom of God in your world.

Our Values


We seek to honour God, God's Word and each other.


We excel by having a spirit of excellence. We excel in giving God the best of our time, talent and treasure.


Greatness comes from serving others and being more like Jesus. We advance the Kingdom of God when we use our gifts by serving God, our city and one another.

Reach out

We are intentional about reaching out to those who are close to us, but far away from God.


We love doing life together. We're not just people who are in the same room together, but united together together. Sharing a common vision to love God and to love others.
