Are you a Christian Church?

Simple answer, yes. We are non-denominational Christian church but affiliated with Converge, which is a church planting organization. For a more in-depth look on what we believe as a church, click here.

What can I expect at a service?

In total, a Proving Ground Church service is about 60 minutes in length. We normally begin with the PGC band leading the church in energetic music - song lyrics are shown on our big screen or overlayed for church online so you can sing along and/or engage with worship. After the music portion of the experience is complete, our pastor will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

Can I watch online?

Yes! If you’re not ready to join us in-person, or just want to experience us online, you can watch live every Sunday! We’d love to have you join us online. Click here for more.

What about child care?

We run state of the art ministry programming for children birth through 5th grade on Sunday Mornings! When you arrive, check in at the PGC KIDS table  and get to know our team.
