Church Description
Located in metro St. Louis, Metro Community Church began as a church that would reach those who had never been to or perhaps had given up on church. Metro Community Church has now grown to over 1600 people in attendance each weekend on two campuses and they desire to plant 3 additional campuses around the region within the next 5 years. They are known for being culturally relevant with life applicable teaching, quality music, and a strong missions culture both globally and locally.

All multi-site campuses feature live music that is modern in style and culturally relevant. Teaching is live on the Edwardsville campus and video-cast to the other campuses. They’ve developed a small groups culture for adults that meet in homes during the week and its estimated that about 75% of Metro Community members are engaged in a group. The average Metro attender is between 30-40 years of age and the church is actively targeting those in their 20’s and college age. Because of the focus on reaching the unchurched, many in the congregation have begun following Christ within the last 5 years. This is a church with lots of vision and a heart for their city!
