Who We Are

Dani lead Worship Joy Medford for the past 5 years, along with running a community food pantry which provided food and clothing to homeless and needy.
Aaron and Dani have 4 kids: Micah, Madalynn, Jael, and Roman.
We believe in GOD...the maker and sustainer of all things who created us for relationship with Him. That relationship was broken because of SIN. Sin brought death into the world...death in our physical bodies and death in our spiritual being. Sin separated us from God and broke our relationships with others. But God sent His son JESUS to become a man, live a perfect life, and offer Himself for our sins. By trusting in Jesus we can become right with God and enter into relationship with Him again. We have been gathered into God’s family, the CHURCH, and given a mission to make disciples of Jesus. We live our lives as an act of WORSHIP, seeking to love others like Jesus loves us. We celebrate that through Christ’s sacrificial and substitutionary death we have been granted eternal LIFE and will spend eternity with Him.
