Grand Junction is the heart of the Grand Valley and is the regional center of the Western Slope of Colorado. It is also the largest community on the I-70/I-15 corridor between Denver and Salt Lake City. While the general population of the Grand Valley is decidedly conservative, they are less likely to profess a faith preference or have any involvement with a church when compared to national averages. Christian influence is on the decline while the Mormon church is expanding in the area. The culture can be characterized as fiercely independent and highly entrepreneurial. The local economies have been hard hit by the current recession and the 2008 pullout by the oil and gas industries.
Since Grand Junction is the regional economic, financial, political, medical and academic hub of the Western Slope, it is of strategic importance to the Kingdom. There are tens of thousands of people who have never heard the Gospel or know of God’s great love for them. There are also thousands who have either been hurt by the church or have concluded that the Christian church is not relevant to their lives. The Grand Valley is ready for a faith community that demonstrates God’s love, proclaims His truth, and reveals His soon coming Kingdom.
To successfully launch NineSevenZero Church it will require a group of Kingdom minded Christ followers who will provide resources and funding for the first 12-18 months. These Resource Partners may not reside in the Grand Valley or attend NineSevenZero Church but their hearts resonate with the mission of our church and they will invest in the vision to reach this strategic region.
