2 | 42 Community Church

Teaching and Family Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Ryan Latham


2|42 is passionate and committed to reaching the communities they serve on a daily basis. With seven locations and more coming, 2|42 is a great place for a leader who is looking to make a massive impact through teaching and leading the NextGen ministry teams.

About This Organization

The name 2|42 comes from Acts 2:42, where Luke describes the birth of the early church. They believe this model of community is the best tool to help people take the next steps with God.

With powerful simplicity, the vision of 2|42 is to be a community “helping people take next steps with God.” To help people take the next steps, they encourage people to Know God, Grow with Others and Change the World.

With the community in mind, in 2013, 2|42 opened its first Community Center. A newly remodeled facility that would not only serve as a 1,200-seat worship space for the church but a place for the community in the community. The 2|42 Community Center has three “missional businesses” in it: Simply Fresh Cafe, CrossFit Gym, and School For The Arts. In 2016, 2|42 opened their second Community Center in Ann Arbor, which is roughly ½ the floor space, but with a similar community impact as the Brighton Community Center. Both are open throughout the week for the community to come and enjoy, with indoor playscapes, meeting rooms, and indoor activity spaces such as soccer fields and basketball courts. The facilities are truly an outward expression of the internal heart of 2|42 and their desire to reach the people of their community where they’re at.
