We’re an imperfect church with imperfect people. Our focus is simple: Jesus is key, and we are on a mission of rescue, as we step towards being fully restored into the vibrant and fulfilled life. The following are what we care about the most.

JESUS AT THE CENTER

Jesus is our savior, guide, and friend. Jesus the son of God gave all, so we aspire to give our all, with living in radical generosity.

CURATORS OF TOMORROW

Children are a precious gift. Guiding our children is a collective adventure. With God's help and our dedication, we hope to leave behind the best art collection for this community to see.

KEY HOLDERS

Once robbed but now found.  We are on a mission of rescue and restoration. Jesus saves, and we are called to echo. Hold your key. 

TRANSPORTING TRUTH

We are devoted to bridging the ancient inspired text to the modern-day context through creativity, the arts, compelling stories, and our voices.

THE TABLE

Everyone is welcome to the table of God.  So we are committed to both illogical hospitality and intentionally sitting around the table together as often as we can.  We bring what we have, serious about serving one another as we follow Jesus.

SIMPLE RHYTHMS

Church is meant to be honest, open and good. We are committed to giving God all our best efforts in excellent expressions. We practice the cadence of worship through work and rest. 

OUR PASTORS

Andy & Christy Cass

Andy and Christy share the same vision and heart for the city of Rochester: inviting all to the table, and being a church that is all about the rescue and restoration in Jesus. They love challenging people to step out of the box of their own comfort, and step into their calling.

Andy and Christy had been serving at a local church in Rochester, when several years ago God planted a seed in them to start a church.  However, they put that dream on the back burner knowing that God would one day bring that dream to fruition when His time was right. In the fall of 2018, it became clear and evident through a series of events and miracles that God was calling them to take that back burner dream and activate it into reality.

They have been married since 2005, have 3 beautiful daughters and love this community!  Christy keeps busy with her hair salon and watercolor art business, while drinking coffee and decorating their home.  Andy refuels by being active, whether it is mountain biking, rock climbing, snow boarding, or wake surfing with their children.  They have a passion for hosting and traveling, and they think it is essential to end your day with a bowl of popcorn!

We are committed to sound Biblical theology.  Even though our methods and worship styles may be progressive, our doctrines are as traditional as they come.  Below you'll find our statement to be quite similar to the vast majority of evangelical churches. And even though we are an ultra-contemporary and known as a non-denominational church, we belong to many large and notable evangelical organizations such as the Association of Related Churches and the AG.
