John is best known for his song, “While I’m Waiting,” from the movie, Fireproof. Check out his video here! From his early days leading the critically acclaimed band, According To John to his impactful ministry as a solo artist, John Waller has continually used his gifts as a singer and songwriter to inspire, educate and encourage the body of Christ. With such powerful songs as “The Blessing” and “While I’m Waiting,” Waller articulates what it means to live a God-centered life in a turbulent world.

For those struggling with the decision to return at this time due to health concerns: Despite our best efforts to clean and provide a safe environment, there is no way that we can eliminate the risk of a person contracting COVID-19. With this in mind, we strongly encourage anyone who is not comfortable with rejoining at this time, to not attend. This includes those with any medical concerns that put you into an at-risk category. We will continue to offer our Sunday services online and look forward to expanding additional points of connection as we expand our online presence and work to connect more people to Jesus.
Our greatest need as a church right now is financial. Your faithful giving allows us to continue serving those in our community during this time. Conveniently give from any device anytime, either as a one-time guest or by opening a secure account for convenient recurring giving. Get started here. (Please note: there are no fees associated with an automatic bank draft.)
