NO MATTER. . . 

Our goal is to cover our state with churches where, no matter who you are, where you’ve been, what you’ve done or what’s been done to you, God loves you, and you can look for God here. We do this by launching campuses in Big Iowa that then launch disciples into Little Iowa. Big Iowa is our entire state and Little Iowa is your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Read more about our mission and vision.
