Church, in a motel?

God is doing something amazing in our community. Dark and dirty motels that were once filled with hopelessness have now become the backdrop for an evangelical movement changing the lives of the forgotten and introducing Salvation to the overlooked.

MotelChurch is not just a nonprofit, it's not just a ministry, it's a movement.

Plant Churches

We plant churches in weekly motels serving the transitional homeless and working poor. These motels are packed with individuals and families who desperately need to experience Christ’s love, and they desperately need you. Each location is just like any other church with music, a message, baptisms and even baby dedications. We believe that a church is not a building, it’s people coming together.

Show Christ's Love

Motel guests are all too familiar with loneliness, heartbreak and the feeling that nobody cares - that they aren't loved. Our primary focus is to be the hands and feet of Christ, expressing love and kindness toward the unnoticed and forgotten among us. It is our job to show love and compassion whether it is through a hug, prayer, or simply through eye contact and a friendly smile.

About MotelChurch

The Gift of Salvation is a gift for all people, yet motel guests don't know about their Heavenly Father, who genuinely loves them. Through relationship building, prayer, and teaching we're introducing guests to a Savior who loved them so much He died for them.

Each week, many guests commit their lives to Jesus Christ after visiting a MotelChurch location. It's that eternal life change that inspires and drives us at MotelChurch.
