Sunday Gathering

In the messiness of shared life, a community of broken people come together to learn what it means to follow Jesus. On Sunday we hope to see miracles, prophecy, healing. We expect the unexpected, and yet are wonderfully contented with the beautifully ordinary discipline of family, songs of protest and praise, and with the bread and the cup of communion.

More about Gathering


Van City Communities

We combat the hyper-individualism of our culture by deliberately choosing to share life with others in the context of community. More than friends with shared interests, a community shares resources, burdens, and life as they learn to apprentice Jesus together. In community, we learn what it means to follow Jesus as we work to see God's will done in Vancouver as it is in heaven.

    As we continue working through our fall teaching series and practice, Fighting the World, the Flesh, and the Devil, we want to make more space for ongoing dialogue.

  • Training & Q&A with Chad Johnson

    Come learn what it means to be empowered by the Spirit to love and risk in the everyday rhythms of life—how to hear God when you’re at work, in a store, on a commute. How to go out on limb for people, pray for healing, and prophecy.
