Life Together In The Pursuit of Jesus
Connect in community
We were made for community. No one exists to do life on their own. We need spaces made up of people from all generations of life, to share stories, eat meals, pray, and study God’s Word. We need a space where we work to consider each other over ourselves. No community is perfect, and no two communities are exactly the same; we don’t expect them to be, because people are messy and so is our pursuit of Jesus.
Lead a community
We are looking for people who have a passion and vision to lead. People who can't escape a desire to see the name of Jesus be made famous in their city and in the hearts of the people who live there. If you are one of these people, we would love to start talking about having you plant a Pleasant Hill Community.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
Communities are the primary way that we scatter during the week. Meeting in homes centered around a neighborhood, we study the Bible, pray, eat, and spend time doing life together in messy pursuit of Jesus.
Pleasant Hill Communities are established on 4 identities:
We have a deep desire to belong. We all need a place where we are free to be ourselves. We need a place where it is okay to be in process, where we are loved in spite of our failings. Pleasant Hill Communities are places where you can be known and belong now.
We need an environment where we can learn about God, other people, and ourselves. We are continually learning more about God and how the Gospel affects and applies to our daily lives, helping us see everything through the lens of who God is and what He has done for us through Jesus.
We are all worshippers, which is why each of us needs a greater awareness of the depth of our sin and the goodness of God as he demonstrates His love for us in Jesus. This cultivates worship centered around the only one who deserves it.
We are all called to be missionaries. We are called to serve those around us and proclaim the truth of what Jesus has done of us. We live life on mission in the places we live, work, and play working alongside God to see people reconciled to relationship with Him and culture be renewed for His glory and our joy.
