Missio Dei Community in Salt Lake City was the first church we helped to start in a western city, in 2010. The solid growth at Missio led the church to purchase a permanent meeting place in downtown Salt Lake City at the end of last year. During a tour of their new facility the leaders of other Orchard Group churches prayed for Missio and Kyle Costello, the lead planter.

The launch team is growing with each meeting under the leadership of Derrick Puckett. One Chicago resident has been attending the Renewal Church events, and has started inviting friends. He recently told Derrick, “I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life. These people are a diverse group, but they all love God. It excites me & I want to be a part of it.” The vision for Renewal Church is becoming a reality in Chicago!
