WHY FORT COLLINS?
Fort Collins is a city of 167,500 people, many of whom are in need of the gospel.
Fort Collins is part of the Front Range, which is identified as a SEND City by the North American Mission Board.
Fort Collins is home to Colorado State University, a university of 31,000+ students from all over the world.
A NEXT GENERATION CHURCH PLANT
As Colorado State students graduate, a natural “going out” occurs in Fort Collins.
These students leave Fort Collins for jobs in other cities.
The vision of Overland Church is to capitalize on this natural “going out” in order to plant churches in the Mountain West.
We will reach the community of Fort Collins and the campus of Colorado State with the purpose of sending others out to plant more churches.
Overland Church believes the principles of Titus 2 provide a framework to plant a multi-generational church in Fort Collins.
Planting a multi-generational church enables Overland to have the opportunity to see Titus 2 discipleship and training occur in order to capitalize on the natural “going out” of college students in Fort Collins.
Overland’s vision is to reach the students on campus with the gospel, disciple and train them and then send them out as they graduate to plant more churches in other cities.
THE NEED IN THE MOUNTAIN WEST
There is 1 SBC church to every 23,875 people in Fort Collins.
Four of the SEND cities identified by the North American Mission Board are in the Mountain West.
There is a population growth occurring in the Mountain West, which makes it poised for a gospel explosion if churches are planted.
