These are some of the comments by members during independent focus group sessions. Two separate groups based on age demographics (18-25 and 25 and up) and these are the similar comments between both groups.
It's like family. Once you get here, everyone connects.
Greeted With Love
It's a very welcoming atmosphere. Ultra loving when you first walk through the door.
Our pastor is very transparent, down to earth and reachable. He and his wife are very friendly and lovable. They connect with the people.
relevant & engaging teaching
Pastor Cooper has a great teaching style. Come in with a purpose and leave feeling like you have grown, without the theatrics.
come as you are - REALLY!
No fashion show, just genuine friendliness. No judging of the outer appearance and the pastor is able to relate to young people and their style. You do not have to worry about the clothes that you wear.
Always somewhere to serve. There is always something to do. We have authentic fellowship after church is over.
young people friendly
The church is very young people friendly. The pastor speaks with us, connects with us and is able to relate to our style.
Able to make real connections. It's easy to form relationships with people because there are NO CLICKS, NO CHAOS AND NO DRAMA. That's refreshing.
true free will giving
We don't get pressured to give. No typical church antics with that. We're taught about giving through tithes and offerings and the offering collection is at the back of the church to give. Because of that we love to give and we give cheerfully.
