In 2014, College Park Church launched a church planting strategy in order to mobilize our people to reach our next-door neighbors and beyond with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Part of this Next Door Mission includes seeking to revitalize gospel-proclaiming congregations in the Indy metro area through adoption.
In the fall of 2017, the leaders of The Rock Bible Church in Greenwood contacted College Park Church, asking College Park to prayerfully consider adopting its church and its people. The Rock Bible Church had a desire to continue a gospel-proclaiming witness on that property and in that area of the city.
This adoption was approved by the leadership of College Park Church, the members of The Rock Bible Church, and the members of College Park Church. The new church, College Park Greenwood, relaunched in Greenwood in the fall of 2018, following an Incubator phase at the College Park Ministry Center.
College Park Greenwood is led by Lead Pastor Ben Parker and Pastor of Theological Development & Shepherding, Joe Bartemus. Together, this team is helping shepherd and equip the church as it strives to glorify God and ignite a passion to follow Jesus.
Lead Pastor, Ben Parker
We are grateful for the Lord's provision through Ben Parker, our new Lead Pastor. Join us in praying for Ben and his family as they continue to provide leadership at our church.
