Solea and her husband, Rodney, joined Communitas in 2014. They had served as church planters in Montevideo, Uruguay for over 15 years. During their time in Uruguay, they were constantly asking God to show them a model of what a “truly Uruguayan church” would look like among Montevideo’s professional class. Uruguayan culture is both secular…

We discovered Communitas on our way to take a position at an international English speaking church in Aix-en-provence, France. This started us on an amazing journey of 6 years in France, two years in Morocco and as of now 10 years on the leadership team for North America. Our special emphasis on Grace captured me…

A church, but maybe not what you think… Kaleo Fellowship is a church, but we may not fit your notion of what a church is. We believe the church is God at work through His followers. So while you may find us gathered in a home celebrating our relationship with God and encouraging each other…

In 2000 I found Jesus in the middle of a divorce from a very abusive marriage. The healing, love and joy I have found propels me to want those who hurt the most to know the same in their lives. Doing ‘church on the street’ I love on the unsheltered in St Paul MN .…

Missional Initiative – Denver

default-project-logo
Project

Denver is a major urban gateway to the West, home to an amazingly diverse population.  From the wildly liberal to the ultra conservative, from the strictly religious to the spiritual-but-not-religious, our cultural bandwidth is wide and colorful.

Project

Led by Dan Steigerwald, Forge PDX is designed to cultivate a city ethos conducive to incarnational church planting.

Discerning the time was not right, we continued in full time,…
