Sadly, many churches are closing all across North America. We want to see that trend stopped! Movement Church is one attempt to impact the culture, particularly in the Fraser Valley, with a life giving, and multiplying church plant that aims to see many come to know, follow, and embrace for life, our LORD Jesus. This will require new ways to reach people that we have not yet considered. Check out this link that describes four brilliant ideas/ways that missional churches are changing the cultual landscape in North America. Now dream of what God can do here in the Fraser Valley, and help us write your own job description!
