We are abundantly blessed. We invest our time, money and talents—we are stewards, not owners.

Inspired Creativity

We live our lives as an act of worship. We embrace unconventional and personal responses to God.

Activation

Ashland will look different as we each discover our unique calling. Together we transform communities.

We are uniquely equipped to embrace transition. Life is constantly changing and God is faithful.
