Monterey Church is a multi-generational, multiethnic movement of Jesus followers that are committed to growing to live and love like Jesus, while leading other to do the same. We believe that we grow as disciples when, by the power of Holy Spirit, we are regularly incorporating God’s Word, community and spiritual practices into our daily rhythms.
While we gather regularly in the heart of Downtown Monterey, California, our mission is to go and make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20) in our neighborhoods, city, country and internationally as the Lord leads us.
Founded in 2006, Monterey Church has had the unique opportunity to equip and empower thousands of people who live in the area, and those who have come to and through our city due to military assignments (Naval Postgraduate School, Defense Language Institute), college (CSUMB, MIIS, MPC, etc.) and tourism.
Monterey Church has partnered with churches and ministries internationally, including close relational partnerships in Cochabamba, Bolivia, Oaugadougou, Burkina Faso and Tecate, Mexico. We have also seen God use our online music
ministries to reach people in over a 130 different countries around the world.
As the Lord is willing, we are committed to continuing to introduce more people to our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, and to equip and empower more people to grow as disciples, to go and make disciples and even plant churches as the Spirit leads!
