WE BELIEVE IN PRESENCE.

A place of authentic encounters with the love of God that brings healing, miracles, and freedom. Extravagant worship – giving all of our thoughts, actions, and feelings to express our love for God. Passionate prayer for all people, all nations, all the time.

WE BELIEVE IN TRUTH.

The living, breathing word of God shapes the way we live our lives. We see the truth of God reflecting who we are as sons and daughters.

WE BELIEVE IN CULTURE.

Loving and encouraging each other through relationships. Utilizing the strengths of every generation as we all run together. A community that promotes diversity and cultural relevant teams, not individuals.

WE BELIEVE IN PEOPLE.

Preparing world-changers, training individuals, starting churches, spreading the good news far and wide. Teaching by example – how to live meaningful, God-centered lives. A constant commerce of people, coming and being launched out into every nation, bringing lasting freedom and joy.

Who We Are

Our Team & Leadership

Campus Pastor

LONNIE THOMPSON

Pastor Lonnie’s heart is for the love of God to be apparent and manifested in his life, through the building of relationships. He is the father of four and a papa of two beautiful grandchildren. At the age of 15, he began an internship with Bay Area youth for Christ in New Port Richey Florida, his home town since birth. It was during this time he felt the calling on his life into the ministry. Over the past 27 years, God has continued to use Lonnie in many settings and functions including youth pastor, worship leader, touring musician, in homeless ministry, and most recently an executive pastor for the last 10 years.

In every capacity his heart remained focused on one thing, relaying God’s unconditional love. He believes no matter who you are, where you’ve been, or what you’ve done there is redemption in the blood of Jesus. God will love and meet you right where you are and give you new life. It is only through the cross of Jesus that salvation can be found.

In May of 2020, God called Lonnie and his son Liam to Lynchburg to continue his calling in sharing the love of God and advancing the kingdom. He believes through planting and cultivating relationships that represent the nature of Jesus, we will see lives eternally effected through the power of the Holy Spirit both in and outside of the church walls.
