We have been working on the launch of a new church for 17 months. Our team is projecting an April launch which would have been a total of 20 months of preparation. God has been good! We have a GREAT group of launch team coming together (love these people), a place to meet, a capable team of staff coming together, working hard on fundraising, putting together all our branding, beginning to put a creative team together, and the work continues. It is, literally, endless. It is tough and challenging, but a very rewarding call of God.
We have moved through some of these stages with more to go:
- Dream Phase
- Foundation Phase
- Core Development Phase
- Community Phase
- Preview Phase- We’re almost to this phase!
- Launch Phase
- Small Church Phase
- Existing Church Phase
We sense the momentum, the excitement, the energy, the hope, and the determination for the launch of Origin Church. If you’re near Chattanooga, TN, all we are missing is YOU! If you are a college student, we have INTERNSHIPS available for you. Email us! We need friendly people, graphic artists, rappers, rockers, financial planners, dreamers, people that are good with children and teenagers, web designers, all types of musicians, office managers, cartoonists, lighting and sound technicians, film editors, humans, actors and actresses, dj’s, painters, singers and vocalists, sculptors, poets, writers, service planners, set designers, camera operators, licensed truck drivers, police officers and security workers, and more! If you don’t fit any of these categories, we’ll create a category. You’ve go to join our launch team today!
If you are willing to dream dreams so outrageously big that it would be unethical for us to take ANY credit when they come true, then we need each other! We believe that a few faithful people can bring about real, earth-shattering change in the world! We believe that thousands of people who are de-churched, mad at church, or don’t go to church will come to live adventurous Christian lives! We believe that real diversity makes us stronger! We believe that the bold, compassionate, revolutionary Jesus of the Gospel is more relevant today than ever before! We believe that downtown Chattanooga, TN and downtown Ringgold, GA is going to birth a movement of unprecedented Christians that set a new standard for what it means to be a follower of Jesus! It will be done with compassion, truth, and love for people! It will be a unique combination for church-life, that might not have been seen in this life!!
