The Porch offers hope in the midst of uncertainty

WHAT'S IN THE NAME?

The Porch is a place of community
Historically, the porch was a place where people would gather, hang out together, and get to know each other. Our Porch is, too.

The Porch is a place of authenticity
The porch used to be a place where you dated. Unlike dating in the privacy of a movie theater or the back seat of the car, on the porch you dated in the light. The Porch is a place to date and live life in full transparency and freedom.

The Porch is a place where you look out to the city
The porch used to be a place to look out into the neighborhood. The Porch is a place where we can look out into the city, see the needs, and meet them.

The Porch is an entryway
The porch was an entry way into the home. In the same way, The Porch is an entry way into the Church. We encourage young adults to be fully devoted followers of Christ.

Through messages, conversations, and the lives of hundreds of volunteers who make The Porch happen each Tuesday, people are being changed and becoming agents of change throughout our city and the world. We are constantly humbled by the way God continues to work in our midst and change lives. Our generation wants to be a part of something that matters. The Porch is a group of young adults seeking to take the message that matters most to the corners of our city and the ends of the earth.

Come and see.

Throughout history, one age group has consistently had incredible influence on the culture and world around it: young adults. We love this age group, and believe it is crucial in its influence, and limitless in its potential impact.

"The Porch has been a game-changer for me since it came to Tulsa. The messages are full of truth, and the conversations facilitated from them create an atmosphere unlike any other I’ve found. Because of The Porch, I have experienced a genuine Christian community where I am fully known, fully loved, and encouraged to keep pursuing Christ whole-heartedly."

The Porch Live, Tulsa OK

The Porch Live is a relaxed atmosphere where people can invite friends and introduce them to the truth of Jesus. The word is preached boldly and is specifically tailored to the young adult demographic by pastors that aren't ashamed to share their shortcomings, failures and the work God did in their life.
