Awaken LogoThe Movement

Our mission is to impact lives in Christ, connect people in relationships, engage disciple-makers in the Spirit and invest faithfully unto the Lord.

Getting Started

What do we know about our community?
Where we have been together?
What should be our intentional focus for our worship?
What should be our purposeful focus for our walk?
What should be our strategic focus for our work?

Getting the Vision

“I think there is something more important than believing—Action! The world is full of dreamers. There aren’t enough who will move ahead and begin to take concrete steps to actualize their vision.”
—W. Clement Stone
“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.”
— Helen Keller
“The vision is really about empowering workers, giving them all the information about what is going on so they can do a lot more than they’ve done in the past.”
— Bill Gates
“When you have vision, it affects your attitude. Your attitude is optimistic rather than pessimistic.”
— Charles R. Swindoll
