We want to see the Gospel saturate the entire city of Norfolk and for every man, woman, and child to have an opportunity to hear the gospel from a follower of Jesus. In order for that to happen, there must be more healthy Gospel-centered churches, who are movement minded, planted in the city of Norfolk, home to nearly 240,000 people.
Considering how many people come to faith by the age of 18 and how many more by the age of 24, college is an extremely strategic and crucial time to engage students with the gospel. With 30,000+ students between Old Dominion University and Norfolk State University and only 3.6 miles separating them, there is great potential for a movement to spark at both campuses and to see the gospel disperse not only deep and wide into our city, but all throughout the states and our world as well.
As the nation as a whole culturally and ethnically diversifies, the City of Norfolk does the same. Norfolk is already a majority-minority city and we want to be a church that reflects not only its city, but the coming Kingdom of God. Therefore, we want to be a church for all peoples within the city.
Whether it be community service or supporting families through foster care, we long to be a church for the City of Norfolk. We want to collaborate with other like-minded churches and organizations to seek the welfare of our city in tangible and intangible ways.
