By creating additional campuses around the Twin Cities, we are able to best serve our neighbors while still being part of a church that is committed to making a difference locally as well as globally” says Edina Campus Pastor, Kyle Robinson. “We are excited to join in what God is already doing right here in downtown Minneapolis.”
