Welcome to Mountain
If you're new to Mountain or simply want to learn more about what it means to be a Christian, "Welcome To Mountain" is your essential next step. Lead Pastor Ben Cachiaras or a Campus Pastor, will help you discover the basics of the Christian faith, what kind of church we are and how you can be a part of this special place.
We hope to see you there!

The hurricane recovery efforts in Houston, Jacksonville, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have begun. It will take time to restore these places, and in 2018 Mountain will be investing in these areas hit hard by the storms. You can be part of the recovery effort in a few ways:
- Give financially to the trips and relief efforts
- Go on a trip to the storm-torn areas in need (details below)
2018 Trips to Affected Areas
To build in some consistency/culture to our efforts we will host monthly gatherings to regroup, brief, debrief, celebrate, train, inspire, cast vision, answer questions, and PRAY. Since this is such a “moving target” in each location, as we receive word from the 4 fields, we will adapt to the needs along the way.
You don't need to sign up to attend, but download and fill out the trip application (below) before the meeting. Bring the form with you to the meeting.

What is Compassion?
For over 60 years, Compassion International has been making a difference in the lives of children growing up in some of the most impoverished places on Earth. Though the statistics on poverty have greatly improved over the past 25 years, the reality is that there are still 385 million children living in extreme poverty (defined as less than $1.90/day by World Bank, 2013). This type of poverty stands in direct opposition to children growing up healthy, educated and with every opportunity to achieve their God-given potential.
Mountain is partnering with Compassion through child sponsorship. We're inviting everyone to be a part of it. This June, you can experience what poverty looks like through the eyes of a child.
Visit the Compassion Experience | June 7-11
This free event features an interactive journey through the true stories of children living in developing countries like the Philippines, Kenya, Uganda and the Dominican Republic.
In over 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors will step inside homes, markets and schools — without getting on a plane. Each child's story starts in poverty but ends in hope.
There is a family friendly version of this experience at both locations. Participate in some family activities in your home by getting resources through RightNow media. If you don't have an account, sign up here, then visit the Compassion section here.
Reserve your experience time at one of these locations.
Volunteer at the Experience
As a volunteer, you are essential to every step of the Compassion Experience, as guests are educated about Compassion and the difference child sponsorship makes. You are the first face of Compassion for these guests, and you play an important role in their sponsorship decision. Find out more and sign up below.
