Reimagining Church

Our Reimagining Church teams work with established ministries and leaders to reimagine what it means to be the Church engaging a lost and broken world. They seek to mobilize the existing Church for sustained Kingdom impact in communities and among those who are not-yet-believers.



reFocusing equips pastors to live out their calling and lead their churches to make new disciples as they impact their local community.


Team – reFocusing
David Knaup, Kirk Mackie, Randy Steele, David Zimmerman, Robb Hattem, Kirk Kirlin, Nick Greenwood, and Gary Janetzke



RYFO is a ministry to musicians that exists to eliminate the cultural divide between the Church and the music scene. RYFO awakens faith among the artists they serve, shapes their identity biblically, and aids them in discovering a redemptive purpose for the art they create.
