We provide opportunities and encouragement for you to give God glory in every part of your life. That is what disciples of Christ get to do: We glorify God and enjoy him forever! The way we do this is our three part STRATEGY: Connect, Grow, Go!
What does it mean to Connect? – Connecting is all about relationships. We connect both with God, and with each other. God loves us and wants us to know His love for us. You can belong with us before you believe! In weekend worship, we enjoy connecting with God corporately, and encountering His presence through praise, Bible teaching, prayer, and Holy Communion. You can connect through attending an event. We connect with God individually through our personal prayer, Bible study, and abiding in Christ, as well. We also connect with each other through close relationships, including Small Groups and mentoring relationships. Some other ways to connect are in Men’s Ministry, Women’s Ministry, Youth Ministry, Children’s Ministry, and through Pastoral Care. If you are looking to find where we are located, or speak to a live person, click here. Or connect with us on our Facebook page. You can read current news, reports about our church, including testimonies and thinkpieces, in our newsletter.
Why did Clancy start Church of the Holy Spirit? “I have a heart for secular people, because I was one for so long. God’s love changed me. In the Lord Jesus, I found the fulfillment of my heart’s longing. Through the Holy Spirit and the Church, I found healing, true friends, and supernatural power for living. I also have a heart for discipling believers, patiently demonstrating to them how to become more like Christ through close relationships for many years. I long to see many churches planted through our ministry, and revival come to our region!”Read Blog

The Vestry is intended to function like biblical Deacons in the local church (Acts 6:1-7; 1 Timothy 3:8-13). Under the Constitution of our denomination, and our Bylaws, the Vestry is our board of directors, and has oversight of the temporal matters of Church of the Holy Spirit, while the Rector has oversight of spiritual matters. Vestry are lay people who are elected by members. The budget is owned by the Vestry. The Rector and Vestry work together to oversee our church. Our Pastors meet separately to share counsel and life together.Our Vestry
Vision, Mission and Values – in summary
Our Vision: We see God creating an Acts 2 Church: a vital Christian community, where we live the life of the early church. So we “devote ourselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles…” For more, click here.
Our Mission: “We invite nations and generations to experience God’s Love and Power.” This is what we do. For an explanation, click here.
