Overview of the Opportunity

This post follows an announcement made in yesterday’s worship service that was accompanied by a handout which can be found here.

Since Involve started, several people have asked the question: “Is Involve looking to buy a building?”  Our answer has been simple.  We see a building as a tool for discipleship and if owning a building helps us disciple people better, than yes!  We would consider buying a building.  We want to be defined by our mission and not our building.  Our mission is to Involve people in an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ.  Whether we are in a mobile church setting or a permanent facility, we want to maintain our focus and stay the course.  It’s about discipleship at Involve and you all have helped make that possible.

Involve Church to Offer Accredited Ministry Courses and Degrees

ben-white-148430We are excited to announce that, beginning September 2017, Involve Church will be offering accredited ministry courses and degree programs in partnership with Antioch School for Church Planting and Leadership Development.  This will provide those wishing to pursue further theological education an option that is financially accessible and sustainable without leaving the ministry environment of the local church.

How did this come about?

It’s no secret that we are a new church, planted by other churches, moving into our third year.  From its very start, Involve Church has been about church planting for the sake of reaching people with the message that there is forgiveness and new life in Jesus, as well as seeing them grow in following God.  As we planned to start a church centered around that central message and purpose, we knew that we wanted to a be a church plant that planted churches.

While discipleship has been and will increasingly be an important part of Involve Church, we knew we needed an option that would take our leader and church planter training to the next level while at the same time allowing people to continue serving in the context of the local church.  Through a contact with our sister church in Boise, ID, we were connected with Antioch School and are now certified to begin offering degree programs.

We see this as a great option for further equipping people to carry out the Great Commission without having to uproot their lives to move to bible college or seminary.  As a church, we are excited to continue to move towards becoming a church for training leaders and church planters.

jonathan-simcoe-227321What degrees do you offer?

We offer:

Classes can also be taken for individual credit.  For more information on the degree programs, please email

How much does it cost?

This is one of the more exciting aspects of the partnership.  For a four-year degree program, the student will spend around $8,000.  This is significantly less than other institutions offering similar degrees.

How do I get more information?

We will have periodic informational gatherings.  Catch this upcoming Sunday’s at 11:45am.  If you’d prefer, you can schedule a meeting with Pastor Luke to talk through the options one-on-one.

Involve Church exists to involve people in an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ.  To find out more about Involve Church, please visit or email

Coming Together


The church body was designed by God to accomplish several jobs.  Together, we worship the one true God, we work side by side to share the good news across the world, and we wear each others triumphs, burdens, and trials as a way of encouragement for one another.  Our church has experienced a heavy burden with the loss of Mason Cunningham.  We are experiencing this burden together with the Cunninghams.  Our hearts go out to the family as they grieve the loss of their little boy.

If you are unaware of the situation, Mason, who is about 18 months old, passed away suddenly, this week.  Mason, who was just enjoying life outside Tuesday evening, got too close to the creek behind the house. In a very short time, he fell in.  The family searched long and hard, joined by a team of professionals from the Nampa/Caldwell area.  Unfortunately, they were not able to recover Mason until the next morning.

Both Wade and Kristina are hurting greatly.  I’ve watched them parent Mason and can say with confidence, that they have done a fantastic job of being attentive to his needs.  This is one of those times, when, as a parent, you think everything is safe and somehow, in a very short time, a little one gets away.  They did everything humanly possible to retrieve Mason.

We are a church family.  We rejoice together, we cry together, and right now we are crying.

We are a church family.  We rejoice together, we cry together, and right now we are crying.  We hurt for the Cunninghams, but we will walk this road together with them.  Already, you, the church, have shown them so much love.  Keep it up!  They need us.  They need Christ.  That’s what we do, we Involve people in the life of Christ.  Together, we are the body of Christ. Together, we live for Christ.  Together, we bear each other’s burdens for the honor and glory of Jesus Christ.

There is a memorial service planned for Mason this Saturday, August 5th at 10:30 a.m.  It will be held at Meridian First Baptist Church.   428 W Pine Ave, Meridian, ID 83642

Involved In Christ,

Pastor Ryan
