Expand the kingdom through church planting.
Our desire is to extend the Kingdom of God by starting healthy, sustainable, multiplying churches in the Jax area. We celebrate the fact that we planted dozens of churches in the recent past but look forward to making a bigger impact for Christ through the planting of second and third generation churches in the future. We hope to reach the 671,543 people who claim no religious affiliation in the city through our ministry.
