Founded in 2017 by DeAndre & Porsha Riley, Strive Church was birthed out of a sincere desire to please God. This God inspired work is based on the scripture found in Philippians 3:12-14: "I have not already been perfected—but I strive to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus also laid hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead, with this goal in mind, I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (NET)"
This church will in some ways challenge the status quo of church. We aim to change the negative stigma that has often been associated with church, while reinforcing the values that make the church what it is.
Our desire is that people will experience the true freedom and power of Christ. All are welcome.
Strive Church will encourage growth both spiritually and naturally. As we are striving towards heaven, we want to experience some of that goodness here on earth. Therefore, we will be strong advocates for family unity, education, entrepreneurship, financial literacy and social and civic involvement.
MISSION: To empower and equip people to pursue and fulfill the will of God for their lives. To strive to be like Christ in all we do.
VISION: Grow. Empower. Impact.
Grow: Strive Church will be a place where all who are connected will grow in the power and purpose of God.
Empower: We will produce disciples of Christ who will empower others to strive towards and fulfill God’s will.
Impact: Our reach will be felt worldwide—beginning at home, and spreading abroad.
