GOD IS STILL

AT WORK

We continue to be amazed at what God is doing through Ethos! At the risk of repeating ourselves too frequently, the truth is, one of the best parts about Ethos is you. No matter how you found yourself reading our “2022 Year End Report," we love you and are honored to be in this together with every one of you! We don’t care what part we play; we are just thankful to play a part. As you read this report, our prayer is that you would sense the whisper of the Spirit saying to you, "Well done." We truly believe God is smiling on the collective work of Ethos and pray that you know how valuable you are. May we always be a church that is built on the sacrifice of many rather than the gifts of a few.

 

We thank God for all that He is doing in our community, and we believe that the best is yet to come! So, here’s to 2023! A year that we sense God is calling us to lean deeper into holistic discipleship as we live out our vision to be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did. Let us be in awe of God. Let us live sent, open-handed, and united. Let us reach, serve, & love more people than we ever dreamed possible,

in Jesus’ name.

Love & Peace,

Jordan & Courtney

MOST PEOPLE HAVE YET TO EXPERIENCE THE REAL JESUS.

We are on a mission to change that.

COMMUNITY

Living life as a family is our priority

The best part about Ethos is the people! The Ethos Family is the heart and soul of our church and everything we do, whether creating spaces of belonging, serving with relentless generosity, or investing into each generation and transforming lives by loving all people in Jesus’ name.

Ethos 101 | Becoming Family 

Ethos 101 is everyone's best step to learn more about the vision, mission, and culture of Ethos. And it is our pathway to being part of the Ethos family by joining a Servant Leader Team and using your gifts regularly through Ethos to serve and make a difference in Jesus' name. 

In 2022, we have seen 83 people say yes to servant leadership and playing a part in our community.

Global Mission Trip
(El Salvador)

We took a team to El Salvador where we had the opportunity to connect with church staff in the cities of La Libertad and San Miguel. We were able to do a number of projects to help serve the church and surrounding communities. The one week we are there helps pastors Ivo and Giovanni and their teams connect with and serve people the other 51 weeks we aren’t there.
