Below are a few ministry highlights from the past 20 years that exemplify our mission and values—snapshots of what God has been doing over the lifetime of Pathway Community Church. He is so good, and we are grateful to have been part of it all. Here’s to many more years of leading people into full life in Jesus Christ!
Since 2002, 1300 people have followed Jesus’ example and publicly declared their faith through baptism at Pathway. It’s been our joy and privilege to stand beside them as they mark this milestone in their journeys with Christ. We’ve heard their redemption stories and we have seen their lives transformed by Jesus’ power. We will never tire of these front-row opportunities to witness God’s goodness and faithfulness, and we can’t wait to see what more he will do over the next 20 years!
Since its inception in 2016, Pathway’s Marriage & Parenting Ministry has discipled 2295 adults across all marital, premarital, and parenting environments. As part of Merge, Re | Engage, Family Dedication, and various parenting seminars, adults at Pathway have been strengthened to live out life-at-home practices with their spouses and children.
Over the past two decades, approximately 1200 individuals have chosen to “be sent” on short-term missions, serving others near and far. Some of our national and international trips have included:
Colorado • New York City • Appalachian Mountains • Haiti • The Dominican Republic • Puerto Rico • Mexico • Guatemala • Honduras • Mozambique • Ethiopia • Thailand • Nepal • Serbia
Additionally, we’ve supported vocational missionaries in 10 countries, including:
• Russia • India • Nepal • Thailand • Haiti • Mozambique • Tanzania • Poland • Cypress • France
God has a vision for the Church and mission for the world that is much bigger than Pathway, and we have the opportunity to be part of it! Over 20 years, Pathway has given $10,154,644 to help support like-minded local ministries, global mission projects, crisis response endeavors, vocational missionaries, and much more.
Pathway’s Orphan Care and Adoption Ministry began in 2009 out of a vision God placed in the hearts of our senior pastor and his wife, Ron and Laura Williams. Over its lifetime, True Vine has dispersed $165,000 toward adoptions. 45 children have joined their forever families through the assistance of True Vine grants. New Mercies Ministries (formerly Safe Families) continues its eight-year long work of providing gospel-centered hospitality and support to families in crisis. In 2020, True Vine launched Care Communities, mobilizing 30 volunteers to provide wrap-around support to six foster families.
Celebrate Recovery (CR) was one of Pathway’s first support groups, with its first gathering on our campus in 2009. Over the past twelve years, this environment has encouraged and supported thousands of people on their journey to heal their hurts, habits, and hangups. CR welcomes 70-80 participants every week—some from Pathway, some from our community—and all encounter the opportunity to find freedom, peace, and joy through Jesus Christ and his healing power.
