But first, coffee.

Location: Cafe Salem

Our first stop on the tour—Cafe Salem—a cozy space for everyone to enjoy and relax. We serve our locally sourced, Sister’s Coffee, and have a lot of drink options to choose from. The cafe also has a study area with computers, and quiet places to study or read.  We love the cafe because it is a space that encourages community through coffee and conversation, and is always a nice Monday morning pick-me-up!

Worship, Pray, & Celebrate in Our Community Gathering Space

Location: The Multipurpose Room, AKA "The MPR"

The multipurpose room, or MPR as we call it, is our weekly gathering place for Monday morning worship, staff meeting, bible study, ministry night, and prayer times. It is a place designed to serve multiple purposes for staff and students and to encourage gathering as a community.

Need some peace & quiet?

Location: Prayer Chapel

The Prayer Chapel is a quiet, more secluded place up in the trees here on campus. It is often used for prayer and quiet times, and a place where people can go to enjoy the Presence of God in solitude, or together. Sometimes events or class are also held in the space. Any time in the prayer chapel is a magical time up in the trees!

Let's take a peaceful walk

Sometimes you just need to get outside - our walking path is perfect for a jog or walk and surrounds the whole campus taking you through the trees, around our staff houses, and into our fields.  You can use the path whenever you want, and is the perfect way to blow off steam, take a walk with Jesus, or a friend!
