Phase 1 - Incubation

July 1, 2018 - Fall, 2019

We believe that like life itself, a church plant begins at conception. City on a Hill begins on July 1, 2018, as the vision (the heartbeat) of the church is developed and preparations are made for the launch in Fall, 2019. Pastor Shamshadeen will be mentored, trained, prayed for, supported, and guided at Restore so that he can be well-prepared mentally, spiritually, and financially.
