Every Presley needs a Beverly, and every Beverly needs a Presley. We believe our church can represent Jesus’ intended vision more than ever before.

Next Steps

In John 1, Jesus invited his disciples to “come and follow him.” To think, be and do life like him. THE WAY is people following Jesus together just like the disciples did 2000 years ago.

Do life with people, with purpose.

In John 1, Jesus invited his disciples to “come and follow him.” To think, be and do life like him. THE WAY is people following Jesus together just like the disciples did 2000 years ago.. It is not a program, ministry, a small group or a team. Its all of that made simple.

THE WAY is a 3 trimesters of 12 weeks each with a four week break in between each trimester. The goal of THE WAY is to help us know God, know ourselves and decide the part we want to play in the world.
