A New Perspective On Worship

As worship leaders, we often think it’s our mission to cultivate experiences where the drums crescendo and the lights dance against the fog machine so the crowd is swept up in the moment and throws their hands skyward as they cry out about the majesty of God. This is how I always imagined a perfect worship set. But then again, the Lord seems to enjoy leading me to places I never imagined I’d go. You see, I grew up in church. I have been leading worship since middle school. At 20, I moved from my hometown of Seattle to New…

Renovation Complete!

After five months of renovations, we are excited to announce that we have completed the renovation process at the UO Denver building. And in keeping with our ministry model, we did it completely debt free! Now that this project is finished, we can focus on continuing to establish a ministry presence in the historic Five Points community of inner city Denver.

Since June, we’ve hosted more than 10…
