Our hope is to help develop leaders for the Kingdom of God, and have a world-wide reach, despite being a rural congregation. We value the authority of scripture, empowered leadership and disciple making. We also value continuing Christian education and try to reflect that in all that we do.

It is for someone who will appreciate and benefit from first-hand exposure to all aspects of ministry under the guidance of experienced ministry staff.
