Highlighting the ways people are doing church.


Over the past several months and years, many of us have wrestled with discouragement, disappointment, division, and even distraction within church. It's got many of us asking the question, "what is church anyways?".

As a community, we want to highlight what church is all about and the ways people are living that out in its many forms. "THIS IS CHURCH." is a new blog post series that we want to fill with your stories, songs, testimonies, and visions of what church looks like.

Have a story you can share (about you or someone else)? Send us an email at to share your short 2-4 minute smartphone video or written story of how you've seen church lived out here. It doesn't need to be perfect by any means -- we'll all be encouraged to simply see you and hear how you've seen church lived out.
