What to Expect

What are services like?
Our gatherings are roughly 90 minutes and consist of singing and celebrating God in the gospel of Jesus Christ, teaching from the Holy Scriptures and partaking in the the Lord's table as a community. Our sermons are biblically driven, culturally engaged and our music is contemporary and theologically oriented.

What is the community like?
We hope to create a place in culture where people who are not particularly religious can find traction in a connection with God. We don't take ourselves too seriously, but take God seriously We like to laugh, yet we weep in suffering We teach the Bible, yet into culture We want to be a place of deepening Christians, doubters, skeptics and learners We embrace depth and theology, but not bookish uselessness We embrace thinking and feeling not wanting to be Vulcans or those who only watch romatic comedies We welcome the stranger and encourage the friend We believe in young men more than they believe in themselves We want to be full of Jesus, not full of it We don't have all the answers, but have confidence in truth

What if I'm not a Christian?
Come and hang with us

Reid Monaghan received a Bachelor of Science in Applied Science with a minor in Physics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While at UNC he also competed on the wrestling team for the perennial ACC Champion Tarheels. He is currently doing graduate work in Applied Apologetics, a multidisciplinary degree involving Philosophy, Biblical studies, and Theology at Southern Seminary. After college, he spent eight years serving alongside his wife Kasey on the college campus with the ministry of Athletes in Action. He pioneered the Athletes in Action campus ministry at Virginia Tech and was the director there from 1998-2004. During his final two years on AIA staff Reid also served as regional director for the Mid-Atlantic and Ivy League schools. From 2004-2008 Reid was on the staff of Fellowship Nashville where he started a work called Inversion, preached in the Sunday rotation and taught classes in theology and Christian Apologetics. Along with a team of friends, Reid is currently planting Jacob’s Well, a theologically driven and culturally engaged church in Central New Jersey. He is also a traveling speaker where he addresses students and athletes on various campuses throughout the United States. He has spoken to college students at such institutions as Brown, Princeton, Yale, Wake Forest, Rutgers, North Carolina and Virginia Tech. In addition to his campus work he has spoken in chapel services for the Tennessee Titans, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Football Giants. Some of my greatest joys in life are from the gifts God has given in my wife Kasey (married 1996), and my kiddos Kayla (circa 2001), Kylene (circa 2003), and Thomas Reid (circa 2006).
