The Mountain Church is a new church that was started in the city of Des Moines. In the early Spring of 2015, 6 people began praying, dreaming, and talking about what a church devoted to Jesus and His teaching could look like. As we continued to pray, more individuals, couples, and families became interested in the mission and vision for the future. In January of 2016, the team began gathering each week at the Englehart's to share a meal and study how the gospel of grace changes and shapes everything.
In May, the gatherings had outgrown the Englehart's house. We needed to find a bigger space that would facilitate the adults and growing amount of young children. In June, we began gathering at Highline College. We rented one classroom for adults, and another for kids. For 8 months we gathered at Highline College until we needed more space for adults and a more organized space for the kids. In February of 2017 we began renting space from the Des Moines Campus of The Gathering Place (Formerly Lifepoint Foursquare Church). By God's grace we will continue to grow as we seek to know Jesus and make Him known in our city.
