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.

Each week volunteers are working to plant churches in weekly motels. These motels have become home to the working poor and transitional homeless. For many reasons guests at these motels are not going to attend a local 'traditional' church. Believing Matthew 18:20 we're partnering with guests in building a congregation made up entirely of people experiencing poverty.
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.
The Gift of Salvation is a gift for all people yet our motel guests don't know about their Heavenly Father who deeply loves them and wants a relationship with 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 guests commit their lives to Christ. Many then get baptized in where else but a motel pool.
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 motel church 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.
Our mission is to serve as God’s servants to help the homeless and working poor living in and around weekly motels to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, grow in Christ to carry on the great commission and the great commandment as the body of Christ and as individual believers, and to become responsible members of the body of Christ in their local area.
Our vision is to be used by God to plant churches in weekly motels, where the body of Christ can meet, grow, serve and reach others for Christ as acts of worship.
We seek to preserve the dignity of each individual by helping them to grow into leadership of their church and to assume responsibility for its operation and for the spiritual growth and health of its members.
Our goal is to lead each fledgling church in each motel through three phases of growth and maturity and to ultimately hand over the keys to the church in each motel when there is a vibrant, responsible leadership team in the motel capable of leading the church on. At each phase of development we will challenge and lead the church to reach for the next phase.
We believe in the transformational development model, which is to help people be self-sustaining and able to do things for themselves, rather than dependent on us.
