Before landing in Auburn, we will spend a year at Summit Crossing Church in Huntsville, Alabama studying multi-ethnic church dynamics, recruiting core team members, receiving specific coaching for church planting, and developing relationships in Auburn and across Alabama. We plan to move to Huntsville in June of 2017, then transition to Auburn during the summer of 2018 to launch the first missional community of Union Church. Our desire is for Union Church to be a gospel-saturated community that equips and sends out missionaries locally and internationally.
