Welcome to Real Life Community

We’re glad you’ve stopped by

You’ll hear us talk about three important areas of engagement for any person interested in walking with God. We hope you’ll take every opportunity to connect, grow, and share. The starting point for every one of us is a vibrant relationship with God in the context of community. On Sunday mornings, that’s what we’re all about – helping those connections take place. God loves you just like you are…but He has great dreams for who you will become in Christ! His goal is for you to reflect the likeness of Jesus with your life.
One way to start that process is by joining a Life Group. In Life Groups, we purposely help each other along the transformation process. God has shared His life with us in Jesus and by sharing His Spirit with us. That great gift is too special to keep to ourselves. The life God has shared with us is meant to be shared with the world through sharing our time, gifts, offerings, and story of life change with others. We’re constantly creating opportunities to help you share God’s life with the world.
To Be Determined

To Be Determined

Lead Pastor

After 11 years of leading Real Life Community, our Pastor, Erik Gernand, and his wife, Ashley Gernand, our Worship Leader, have taken assignments at Trevecca Nazarene University as the University Chaplain and Director of Worship Ministries. While we are sad to see them go, we trust God's leading as we move through the process of calling a new pastor. In the meantime, our current staff and ministry leaders will continue to keep us on mission at Real Life as we seek to Connect, Grow and Share.
