These are exciting days for Frontline Church Planting. What a ride it’s been! Seven years ago we had an unquenchable burden for those starting churches. There was no non-denominational network to introduce them to other leaders in our city and equip them. Our family, Vanguard Church and a handful of supporters took the leap to launch Frontline in order to equip and connect church leaders and teams. Through relationships, books and cohorts we began to equip and coach mission-minded leaders across the U.S. God has showed us massive favor.
But there was one pothole we continued to land in; we had no space to call our own. I began to dream of a space where ministry leaders, creatives, teams and community advocates could build trust and collaborate. At times I felt that dream was impossible. Through the goodness of God and partners who believed in this vision we are launching our own space!
We are already watching leaders collaborate in tangible ways. A handful of like-hearted leaders have been occupying this space since January, but we are preparing to officially launch. 719 Commons will host a workweek co-working community as well as events in evenings and on weekends. This will generate income for new church starts in Colorado.
719 is the area code of Colorado Springs. We want this space to breathe local. “Commons” expresses our desire to find common ground, share common space and work for the common good of our city. On Friday night you might attend a benefit concert in this space, on Saturday a wedding shower and on Sunday a church gathering. Common people will gather, but the creativity that will spring from these walls will be anything but common.
Check out our website to book an event at our “event reservations page” or “give to 719 Commons”.

Thanks for dreaming big with us!
