We have lived in the North West suburbs of Minneapolis for over 20 years with the desire to see Christ-treasuring, gospel-focused churches in the area. In the spring of 2020, we proposed planting a church in the area to Bethlehem Baptist Church. We were then approved for their Church Planting Residency program. In July of 2020, we began building a launch team. In February of 2021, the launch team started gathering for monthly worship at the Pizza Ranch in Champlin. In May of 2021, we started meeting bi-monthly. Over the summer of 2021, our launch team small groups started meeting.
