“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45 NIV).
We believe that it reflects the very heart of Jesus to serve and to sow our lives into a city for the purpose of seeing people follow Jesus, thrive in community and make a difference in their world. We are so excited to be planting Liberty Church San Francisco in late 2017, and we would love for you to be a part of it!
San Francisco is a vibrant city with a rich history of diversity and culture, growing exponentially every year. And, as the city grows, so does the need for churches. We are so grateful for the churches who have come before us & served San Francisco faithfully for decades, and we are eager to come alongside them to continue seeing even more people in SF come to know Jesus.
We have been a part of Liberty Church in NYC from the very beginning, serving on the leadership teams that helped launch three of our four existing New York City communities, and later serving as Pastors-in-Residence at our Downtown Community.
From a dream planted in our hearts nearly four years ago, to this moment, moving across the country and sowing our family into this city we love and now call home, God has been faithful. We have seen His beauty and His goodness here in NYC as we have followed Him, and we have felt the difference that true, genuine community makes while living in a city that can sometimes feel large and lonely. These are things we are passionate about bringing to the city of San Francisco.
In this new venture, we recognize that we can’t do this alone, and we are asking if you would prayerfully consider partnering with us as we step out to build Liberty Church San Francisco. We need resource in order to reach people. Our prayer is that you would consider partnering with us to build a community that reaches the city of San Francisco and beyond.
There are three key ways in which you can partner with us:
- Pray for us – Planning and strategy will only take us so far, and we know that, from the outset, this venture must be led by God and bathed in prayer. For updated & specific prayer needs, you can visit www.libertychurchsf.com & select “Keep Me Updated”.
- Connect us – We want to know who you know in the Bay Area who might love to be a part of our launch team, or even just come visit us on a Sunday after we launch! Feel free to pass along our details to anyone who could fit this description- we’d love to connect with them!
- Invest in us financially – San Francisco is not without its financial challenges, with it currently coming in at #1 in the United States for most expensive real estate and cost of living. We ask that you would consider either a one-time gift or a monthly commitment towards the launch of Liberty SF, which includes our family’s support. We are personally raising a large portion of our launch budget and salary, and anything you feel compelled to give will exponentially increase our effectiveness in the city we call home.

We thank you in advance for your generosity, and we are expectant for great days ahead!
