Why Cleveland?

Cleveland has a painful and disappointing past.  Today, there is a new excitement and a new hope for Cleveland!  Jesus Christ came to heal mistakes… even mistakes by the lake!

Clevelanders are a tough, hardworking people.  They love their city. We will love them.  Bill and Patty grew up just 50 miles from Cleveland.  Their mission is to lead Clevelanders into growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Through networking, evangelism and relationship building, we will see Clevelanders embrace the Prince of Hope and King of Kings, Jesus Christ.

Our Vision

Gospel-City-Movement

The most effective method of impacting the 2 million people of Cleveland is through planting new churches to reach the unchurched.
Our vision is to create churches that un-churched men, women and children of Cleveland love to attend.

Imagine kids, teens, singles, empty nesters and young marrieds at a turning point in their lives discovering a church they can’t wait to attend.
The Cross of Christ will remain central to our work.
Yet we will seek to build churches that remove other needless barriers by…

  • Loving God passionately
  • Serving others sacrificially
  • Living in the culture productively
