By 2025, we will expand our outreach by heavily investing in our online/virtual/broadcast ministry footprint
April 2023 Update: we have explored opportunities to enhance our reach with radio broadcasting which has proven to be one of the most effective ways for us to reach non-churched people in our area. As a result our 9:30 Sunday service is broadcast live on JAX Country (94.1 FM) and 11am service on Jacksonville’s Talk WBOB (101.1 FM | AM 600).
By 2025, we will expand our disciple-making capability by having 25 new groups formed

Engaging an unreached people group every five years. (Internationally)
