As a church, we are all about following Jesus and know there’s no end to that journey—we’re more about becoming than arriving. We believe everyone matters to God and the best thing we can do is to love God, love people, and change the world.
We are committed to becoming a multi-generational, multi-ethnic, multiplying movement of Christ followers, equipping and empowering our kids and students to not only be the church of tomorrow, but the church of today.
Willow is led by a team of pastors who are here to serve you and our community. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here!

Throughout the New Testament, principles of church leadership point to a central theme: plurality. We believe churches are best led with multiple leaders and good systems of accountability. Our Elder Board is a team of volunteers who provide spiritual oversight, direction, and leadership for the church. They entrust the implementation of that direction to ministry leaders and staff, under the leadership of the senior pastor. This system of organizational leadership, known as Policy Governance, allows the Elders to focus their gifts and time on their biblical mandate to lead and shepherd the church, while allowing ministry leaders (staff) the opportunity to maximize their gifts and talents as they lead their ministries and make practical decisions on how to implement and carry out the direction provided by the Elders.
