Back in 2004, Mark and Linda Turner arrived in Bartlesville as interim pastors for a small church of 40 people. As the months progressed, they realized they loved this town, and the church, and believed God was calling them to plant themselves in the community. For the next ten years they served as the pastors of what was then called Life Church, as it grew to 750 in attendance and outgrew the facility on Swan Drive. The church purchased 35 acres off Rice Creek Road and moved into the current facility on June 7, 2014. Soon after, Scott and Mary Turner transitioned into the role of co-lead pastors. Under the leadership of the dynamic and dedicated pastors and staff the church has grown and continues to thrive. In November of 2020 we launched a second campus in Pawhuska, OK under the leadership of Jamie & Ashley Kelly and it has continued to grow under their leadership. In March of 2020 we launched a food distribution ministry in response to COVID-19 and that ministry has exploded over the last 4 years and we will be opening our City Compassion Warehouse in summer of 2024 to continue to serve those in need in our community.

We are part of a journey more significant than ourselves. Spreading the message of the gospel from Washington County to Osage County and beyond. Challenging the darkness around us with the hope only Christ can offer. We are pressing on towards a bright future!
