Our desire at REAL Church is for everyone in the Clearwater, FL area, to experience what it means to authentically follow Jesus in every aspect of their lives. We believe that every last soul needs to know and experience the Love and Life found in Jesus. Every one of us are called to change the world around by allowing the Love and Life of Jesus to shine! We are REAL People, living REAL Lives, for a REAL Jesus, having a REAL GOOD TIME!
In October of 2015 God birthed the vision of planting a church in Clearwater, Florida. Courtney and I chose to follow God’s lead and began preparing to launch a church in this beautiful city, a city we didn’t even know the location of when we accepted God’s call. We moved our family to Clearwater in July of 2017 and began the process of building a team. Through prayer, meetings, and outreach God gave us an amazing launch team. We launched Real Church in the auditorium of Clearwater High School on September 16, 2018. God has changed so many lives. Each time someone steps into relationship with Jesus or begins to step into their God-given purpose, it makes every moment of this journey worth it. Real Church, the best is yet to come!
We were created for community from the beginning. God himself said, "It's not good for man to be alone." Alone we are ineffective and unproductive, but TOGETHER we are the body of Christ. Real Church will do life together. Gen 2:18; Rom 12:5
Real Church will be a church known for radically loving people with the same kind of scandalous love Jesus has for us. He loved us enough to die for us while we were still in the middle of our junk… So, we will love people boldly no matter who they are and what they have done! Romans 2:4, 1 John 4:11
At Real Church we will seek to understand others by creating a culture of open and honest communication. We grow together when we are willing to bear our souls to one another and listen with the heart of Christ.2 Cor 6:11; Eph 4:2, 4:25, James 5:16
Create with Excellence
God creates with such excellence that it wows and draws people into relationship with himself. Real Church will create with excellence in order to wow and encourage relationship with God. Eph 5:1, Col 3:23, Tit 2:7
