Whatever It Takes

The story of LifeQuest Church is all about doing whatever it takes to reach people who are far from God and then help them grow in their faith.  That’s what makes the people of LifeQuest extraordinary.   It takes countless hours of time, energy and money to keep reaching people and to make a difference.  And yet they are compelled by the vision.  They are obsessed with increasing the traffic to heaven by creating life changing  ...

BREAKTHROUGH: History in the Making

It’s been over 10 years ago since I began attending LifeQuest Church. I have witnessed God change hundreds of lives through the power of Jesus! The stories never get old and there are always new ones being lived out. Just a few weeks ago, a young mom walked through the doors of LifeQuest.

I began to notice him about a year ago on my way to the church every morning. Wearing shorts and a hat, he walked the same route day after day. As the months passed by, he recognized my car and we began to exchange waves on a regular basis. I didn’t know anything about him except for his consistent habit of walking until one day I found out his name. He crossed the street into the church parking lot and introduced himself. I invited  ...
