Welcome to Canyons. We hope that the following information will help you understand our specific focus in ministry.
Leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
We accomplish our mission by creating irresistible environments where people are encouraged and equipped to pursue intimacy with God, community with insiders, and influence with outsiders.
What is an environment?
In our context each environment is a ministry setting designed for a specific purpose. In the same way a home has different environments to serve different purposes we too incorporate this idea into our ministry environments.
The place in your home that serves as the welcome area for guests and new friends is the entry way or foyer. It is the first step, and it’s often your only chance to make your guests feel comfortable enough to return. That’s exactly how we’ve designed our entry environments at Canyons Church. Our Sunday morning worship services are “foyer” environments. We want our guests to come back, so we do everything with them in mind. This environment serves as the perfect place to introduce newcomers to the life of Canyons Church.
Once your guests arrive and are welcomed into your home, you invite them into the living room. Everyone finds a comfortable place to sit, and the interaction begins. At Canyons Church our Living Room environments are designed to help you connect with people like yourself. In the living room environment you will begin to develop relationships with others in a smaller and more interactive atmosphere. Strategic Service teams are our most popular living room environment along with our monthly women's group called Women's Life.
What is the most popular room in your home? Where do you end up when guests or family come over? The kitchen (of course!) This is where lasting friendships are made. And that’s the kind of environment we are striving for in our small groups. Small groups are where people meet regularly for Bible study and prayer, and commit to accountability, friendship and support. They are the safe place to open your heart, share your life, and ask the tough questions. There are small group opportunities for both adults and children. Small groups are the place where ministry happens at Canyons Church. And we want to help you get there.
