seek to see, be, and experience life made in the image of God.

As a social enterprise,

our impact mission is the revitalization

of the mantle of family as humanity's primary institution for human flourishing.


We envision a future where church is

an identity marker not just a building.

We believe in God's vision of The Body of Christ

as submitted kingdom families anchored

in The Word of God for the purpose of manifesting his glory and goodness on Earth daily.

We equip kingdom men, kingdom women, and kingdom families with the knowledge, tools,

and the sacred space necessary to build kingdom lives on the firm foundation of The Word of God. 

We are a team of artists, storytellers, interaction designers, ministers of faith, business professionals,

and wellness practitioners serving as 

new covenant apostles.

 The Being Academy leverages 

new media technology to

open the doors of the church, to build altars

in the minds and hearts of believers, and to seed

Life all around us is shifting rapidly.

We now have unprecedented capacity to 

administer spiritual care to The Body of Christ daily and to teach one another Jesus' Way into the promise land

of eternal life and generational blessings. 

Now is the time for The New Christian Experience.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,

on Earth as it is in Heaven.
