As a church, our hope is that we make such an impact locally and globally that the city and the world around us feel the grace and mercy of Jesus as we move out into the community to bring hope. Not temporary, fading, or low-impact, this is Groundswell. We are partnered with several organizations that allow us to walk alongside them to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world. 



The Carver Community Center is an amazing place in the heart of south Jacksonville Beach. It's a place where kids come for social, recreational, and academic activities. We have formed a relationship with the staff and kids at Carver Community Center, and we are so excited about the opportunities we have been given to serve there.

Light of the World Ministries reaches out to the homeless, poor, and needy in the Jacksonville area by being the hands and feet of Jesus. They work to build relationships with those who have been overlooked and pushed aside by loving them like Jesus and meeting their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs in whatever way they can.
