Ansari Business Building Room 106, University of Nevada, Reno Campus
We moved onto the University of Nevada, Reno campus in early 2013 after two years of meeting in downtown Reno. We're not about creating "another church." We're about doing church.
We are real people meeting the real Jesus.
That's not a cute little slogan. It's about coming as you are (physically, emotionally, spiritually) to an encounter with the Jesus of the Bible. We believe that once you meet Jesus, you begin to change from the inside.
That's why we talk about real issues. About real life. And we seek real answers from the One that has them.
If you already love Jesus, come join us. If you're curious about him, come check us out.
You'll be glad you did.

Jeff Peterson is our music guy.
And music guys aren't really known for their diligence in completing stuff that doesn't involve music, so we don't have a nice little bio on him yet. He's a busy guy with work and all, and being a husband to Teri and a dad to his kids.
But we can tell you that Jeff's been around the Northern Nevada church music scene for several decades.
He's a talented guitar player who has been involved with University Family Fellowship and LifeChurch to name a few of the churches.
And he's passionate about Christ and making a difference in this world.
