The name "Ekklesia" is an ancient Greek (the language of the New Testament) word that means "community"; "gathering"; "a group with shared beliefs"; "church." It is pronounced "Ekk-lay-SEE-uh" (4 syllables). We wanted our name to reflect who we are, our uniqueness, and to show that we're a different kind of church. You've never seen anything like us!
Ekklesia is a community that seeks to reach the unchurched, those who have given up on church, and to see people come to know Jesus Christ personally. We want to form knowledgeable, passionate, followers of Jesus and plant other growing churches.
This is a church plant that will equip believers for personal ministry, to encourage them to use their gifts and to actively reach the unchurched around them. Ekklesia seeks to reach out to those who have given up on church, think it is irrelevant to their lives, and have serious questions about faith and life.
