Center Church is a church plant with the Evangelical Covenant Church in Richmond, Virginia. The movement was birthed out a vision of the pastor, Stephen Poore, while living in the arctic tundra known as Chicago in 2013. Simply put, Stephen had a vision for a church to be a different kind of church. This different kind of church would be a place for people, of all walks of life, to experience Jesus’ transformational acceptance and love. Stephen believed that the church should represent the diversity of its locality and utilize a collective of people, their talents, gifts, and passions to bring about empowerment through Jesus.
Center Church wants to be a church in the city of Richmond, for the city of Richmond. Center Church’s mission is bold; it is all about “empowering people toward a life-giving journey with Jesus,” and the church hopes to create a place where everybody can gather and everybody matters. We would love to have you join the movement that’s taking place In RVA as it is in HEAVEN.
