Discovery Church is a young church with a huge heart for service. First meeting in 2011 in the YMCA, it now sits on 80 acres of land with a modern and open building. This Christian Church has a regular weekly attendance of around 500 and has been following a large growing trend for the past four years. The DNA of Discovery is serving our community, Bible-based teaching, emphasis on prayer, and a high focus on creativity. Discovery Church strives to “Help people discover Jesus and their place in His story.”
Much of what churches do revolve around Discovering Jesus (for example Sunday morning), but at Discovery we want to take the next step -connecting people to God’s plan. The focus of this new pastoral role is to help people discover their “place in His story.” This position connects individuals with God to reach their potential in God’s plan for their lives. These plans may or may not be within the walls of Discovery Church but within the walls of God’s Kingdom. This position is perfect for someone with a humble heart that is excited when guiding others to flourish in God’s hands.
