In May of 2011, a group of 30 core team members came together to plant a church: Christ Community. Sent out by Stratford Park Bible Chapel and partnered with Acts 29, this core team launched with a passion for Jesus-centered spiritual multiplication. Though much has changed since then—new meeting time and place, new leaders, new partnerships, new congregants—our commitment to making disciples of Jesus Christ has not. More than ever, we wholeheartedly embrace bringing the gospel globally through multiplying local church. Jesus has always been and always will be our Chief Shepherd (1 Peter 5:4), and we follow him as he leads.
