ABOUT CLEVELAND AND KAMM'S CORNERS/WEST PARK NEIGHBORHOOD
1.6 Million people reside in metro Cleveland, 400,000 in Cleveland proper, and 21,000 people in the Kamm’s Corners neighborhood.
Take a look around Cleveland and you’ll see lots of churches—large churches, beautiful churches, historic churches, and for the most part, empty churches.
38% of Cleveland is unchurched (have never been to church except for a wedding, funeral, or special event).
Kamm’s Corners is emerging as a prominent place for young families, professionals and students to live who want to be near downtown amenities yet live in a community with the suburban neighborhood feel of quiet, tree-lined streets, parks and playgrounds.
Kamm's Corners is a neighborhood located on the far westside of Cleveland.

Gospel Centered this is demonstrated by filtering everything we do through the Gospel of Jesus. “The gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.” – Tim Keller
Engaged as demonstrated by understanding where God has placed us and engaging with people, leaders, the city, and the culture with the Gospel. “Being the church outside the four walls.”
Diversity as demonstrated by connecting, communing, and welcoming people from all ages, races, socioeconomics, nationalities, gender, and beliefs and at the same time staying true to the centrality of the Gospel.
Generosity as demonstrated by the giving of our time, talent, and treasures.
Intentional about Community Life was meant to be lived in community. We are not meant or wired to live alone, we are made for each other. This is demonstrated by us being in relationships where we encourage, love, bless, welcome, laugh, give freedom for people to be themselves, and value everyone in the community.
Courageous in our Calling God has a unique purpose that He desires to carry out in each individual person and the church as a whole. This is demonstrated by helping people discover their God given calling and helping them have the courage to live it out.
Authentic as demonstrated by being a church where people can be real and accepted no matter where they are on the faith spectrum. We believe people can belong before they believe.
Who are we?
Pete and Robyn and their two sons have moved from the Chicagoland area to plant a church in Cleveland to bring Gospel renewal to people and Cleveland. They have a heart to see those who are far from Jesus come to know him, those who know Jesus to continue to be renewed, and for people to live out their God-given calling to bring renewal to people and cities.
Pete and Robyn both grew up in the Chicagoland area. Pete has been involved in youth ministry for over ten years leading on different levels, started and led several different ministries, and has been an apprentice at a multi-site church. He has also attended Moody Bible Institute majoring in youth ministry and Western Theological Seminary where he received his Masters of Divinity. Robyn has been involved and led various ministries ranging from 18-30 year-olds ministry, hope and healing, and women’s ministry.
Pete loves to hang out with his family and friends, meet new people, play and watch sports, read, lead others to a deeper relationship with God and others, and listen to music.
Robyn loves to read a book on a beach, vacation with family or friends, worship the Lord while listening to music and watch people come alive when they are healed from past hurts through Christ’s transforming power and love.
