    Why We Love This Opportunity

    About This Organization

    The heart of Keystone Church centers around a “sending” culture. As part of the SALT Network of churches, there is a strong emphasis on collegiate ministry. Developing next-generation leaders is a prominent focus. The church’s five-year vision is to be an “overflowing fountainhead of Gospel expansion by developing gospel formed leaders who will overflow into the community, campus, and the world.” Over the last six years, this congregation of 1000 has sent over 120 people to church plants in different cities and states, and they will plant a new church every three years.

    Those who work here find it to be a place full of joy. The team is high functioning, fast-paced, and hard-working, but they like to have fun. There is a high expectation but also a high degree of trust. Keystone is a place where staff members are cared for well. Those who are part of the team feel seen and valued, and people are placed before tasks here. It is often said that they “want more for you than from you.” This attitude extends to volunteers also leadership development is a cornerstone philosophy for Keystone. The staff gathers every day at 10:02 am to pray that God would raise up laborers for the harvest. The expectation is that every team member would identify potential leaders, then encourage and empower them. On this team, “the most honored person is the person who can raise others up.”

    In a season of God’s significant direction and provision, the church is on the cusp of walking into a new building slated for completion in 2023. Construction is currently underway, and they are full of faith in how God will continue to use them to reach their growing community. The new facility will feature a 1000-seat worship center and a significant kid’s wing, equipping space, and office space for staff.
