We are “God’s A plan” in seeing our world saved (delivered, made whole, restored), invited into family, and empowered to create culture.

Our Culture

We follow Jesus, we teach from the Bible, we worship God and see Him as a good Dad. We are a community of believers that are very passionate about the things of God. Because of this, we have a passion for people, our valley and our world.

Our culture is shaped by declarations, worship, family, a love for the presence of God.


We are a family learning to create culture.

Family = Connection. We define family as relationships (in pursuit of health) that aren't built on performance, but on connection.

Learning = Discipleship. We desire to be a people who is always learning. The word disciple comes from the greek word mathetes. The root word means “the mental effort needed to think something through.” So by definition, a disciple is someone who never stops learning.

Culture = Life. We define culture as a way of life. We believe that we are products of the environments we create and that our assignment as Christ followers is to reshape culture.


Our Mission

To empower and influence the world by changing mindsets, understanding family, and awakening people to create culture.

I have legitimate concerns about my children’s future, but I wasn’t put on this earth as their father to teach them to avoid culture; to endure culture; to hide from society, but rather to make it a better place. I am preparing them to lead it. Change it. Bring good to it.
— Adam Cooke, Lead Pastor
