We exist to inspire people to follow Jesus.

We want to honor all of our excellent teachers at VIVE who are superheroes in the classrooms for all of our kids. We want to show them how much we love them by not having them pay for their

school supplies when they already give so much. Our July and August initiative is we are going to do our best to clear the list for our VIVE teachers. We're also providing playground equipment and other supplies for Citizens of the World Charter School. 


We are intentional about building a multi-ethnic, intergenerational church for the people of Kansas City. At times it's messy and it takes a lot of time to have uncomfortable, raw, and intentional conversations to ensure our community is an expression of heaven right here in our city. We are committed that our church has representation in every area of church life here at VIVE. 


Our passion is to disciple cross-cultural followers of Jesus who can guide the church into a multicolored world for the sake of the Gospel. Building a multi-ethnic church is God's heart for us as we learn what it means to be an invigorated community of grace, love, and reconciliation. What a privilege that is for us! We'd love for you to join us.


Here at VIVE our mission is simple: We want to inspire people to follow Jesus. Which means everything we do is built on true discipleship. There’s a great cost that comes to casual, routine Christianity. We were never called to simply become a Christian. We believe that coming to know Christ isn’t the conclusion of your spiritual experience; it’s the beginning of a lifelong discipleship journey that will mold you and shape you as you grow in your relationship with Jesus for many years to come to become a disciple-maker. In other words, becoming a Christian isn’t the end of something… it’s the start of something!

At VIVE we believe there are four important steps in every believer’s discipleship journey:

Encounter Jesus, Find Belonging, Discover Your Purpose, and Go And Make Disciples
