Why 3D Church?
In short, we believe there’s an entirely new dimension of life just waiting to be lived! Jesus came to offer us a rich and satisfying life. He said, “I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of” (John 10:10, MSG). In a radically simplified statement, that’s what we’re in pursuit of ourselves. And this is what Jesus offers to everyone and anyone who will join him in the journey: real life, eternal life… and a better life than you’ve ever dreamed of! This new dimension of life is realized and made real as we discover the three D’s of our philosophy…
We are the very DELIGHT of God and in response surrender ourselves to Him and His plan for our lives!
Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV) – “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.””
What comes first — our surrender to God, or His delight over us? We believe our Creator’s outrageous love for us precedes our love for Him! The last thing we need is more rule-keeping and performance-based living. Our problem is not primarily that we don’t love God enough… it’s that we simply don’t realize how much He loves us! It’s in receiving God’s love that we’re able to love: “We love because God loved us first” (1 John 4:19). That’s what makes grace, grace. When God’s amazing grace and outrageous love break through in the human soul something is awakened within us. We come alive. We’re made new. We’re transformed, and ready to discover that…
We have a very unique DESIGN that determines how we can best serve Jesus and find our significance in Him!
Every one of us was created on purpose and for a purpose — as an object of God’s love and creative genius. Your life is not an accident! Your parents may not have planned you, but God did. He’s the One who gives your life meaning. We are convinced that life is the most exciting, fruitful and fulfilling when we connect with our original purpose and design . Therefore, we are passionately committed to helping every person we can discover the purpose for which they were created and live it out loud as a part of God’s dream for them and the world!
We ultimately exist for God’s glory and bring Him honor as we live out His DREAM for the world!
This world in which we live ultimately belongs to its Creator. Just as He created each one of us on purpose and for a purpose, He has a plan and a dream for the world He made. It is God’s dream to see His reign established in every sphere of society! As human beings — the pinnacle of His creation, made in His image, he has invited us to partner with Him in caring for His world and seeing this dream realized. What an incredible honor and privilege to be a part of something so significant! To see His dream realized, it is our dream to raise up people of passion who live with a clear sense of purpose. We want to invite you to join us in seeing God’s dream realized in the Denver metro area and around the world. This starts with YOU finding your place in His plan… so you can impact your world!
Genesis 1:27-28 (ESV) – “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.'”
Habakkuk 2:14 (NIV) – “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”
In summary it’s all about knowing God, loving people, and impacting our world!
We exist to connect people to Jesus and to His purpose for their lives… in order to transform the world.
In essential beliefs … we have unity. Ephesians 4:4-6; 1 Corinthians 1:10 (NLT) I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.
In non-essential beliefs … we have liberty. Romans 14:1 & 12
In all our beliefs … we show charity. 1 Corinthians 13:2 (MSG) If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.
The Bible … God wrote a book
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.
The Trinity … God; three in one
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe and has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they are coequal in power and authority and are one God.
The Father … God is great, God is good
God is great in that He is all-powerful, all-knowing, ever-present, unchanging, perfect and holy! God is good in that He is loving, gracious, merciful, compassionate, faithful and true to all His promises and completely worthy of our trust!
The Son … God became man
Jesus Christ is completely human and at the same time completely God. He is coequal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He is the only plan for bringing people who are separated from God because of sin back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands per perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection after three days later to demonstrate His power over sin and death and give us life!
The Holy Spirit … God is always present
The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus. He also lives in every believer from the moment they surrender their lives to Him in faith. He draws people to Jesus, exalts Jesus and once someone becomes a believer, He makes them more like Jesus. He provides the believer with spiritual gifts, the ability to understand spiritual truth and power to live out their faith.
Man … God’s image bearers
Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation! As such, every human being is uniquely created, possesses dignity and is deserving of respect and love. However, God’s image has been marred and the relationship we were designed to have with Him has been disrupted through sin. Sin actually separates us from God and man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Only Jesus can reconcile us to Himself by His grace!
Eternity … Somewhere forever
People were created to exist forever. We will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally with Him is Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
Salvation … God’s only way
Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the finished work of Christ; which includes His shed blood, death on the cross, resurrection and ascension. Salvation is a gift from God and it cannot be earned through our own efforts. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. It is by grace and grace alone that we are reconciled and receive the gift of eternal life. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus into their life by faith!
The Church … God’s design for community
The Church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Jesus Christ. The church is central to God’s work and is the primary instrument through which His work is accomplished. As such, the church does not exist for itself but rather for the sake of the community and those still outside the faith. As such, the church works together in love and unity to bring the good news of Jesus.

How We Serve
Our main way of combating poverty and providing home repair and children’s ministry is through volunteers. ARM hosts youth mission teams during the summer at two locations in Alabama: York and Tuskegee. Our site in Tuskegee runs year round allowing for Spring Breaks, Christmas Breaks, Fall breaks, and even mission retreat weekends. York runs only in the summer. Our mission teams serve with families who need home repair and/or provide engaging activities for children at our Sonshine Kids Day Camp.
The ARM staff assists teams coming to do home repair by purchasing materials, introducing teams to their families, and serving as technical assistants. Typical ARM projects include repairing and/or replacing roofs, ceilings, floors and walls. We also build steps and wheelchair ramps for elderly or disabled individuals. We match our projects with the skills of our volunteers, maximizing the services we are able to provide. Our service extends to plumbing and electrical work when our volunteers are able to do such work. If you are involved in a group with any of these skills, please consider a trip to ARM to help the elderly and disabled families of rural Alabama.
Teams working with the day camp serve alongside with the ARM day camp staff to plan Bible studies, songs, recreation activities and much more! Day camps are run similarly to Vacation Bible Schools and other day camp programs. Our volunteers are able to enhance the children’s experiences through interaction, whether it be fellowship, playing games, going on field trips, or presenting Bible stories and devotions. The children of the Sonshine Day Camp are truly remarkable in their ability to show love to so many volunteers that come in and out of their lives each summer. We invite anyone with a love for children to join us for this amazing experience this summer.
ARM began in 1998 in Sumter County, AL. as a pilot project through the University of West Alabama Wesley Foundation (United Methodist Campus Ministry) and Auburn University. Founded by, Lisa Pierce, there was a heart and desire for two things: to minister to families on limited and fixed incomes in the rural parts of the community and to create intentional missional and discipleship encounters between all those involved.
ARM first started by hosting volunteer teams who served families by providing home repair such as repairing roofs, building wheel chair ramps, replacing flooring, etc. In 2001, we started a summer day camp called Sonshine Kids Day Camp. This was because we saw children in the community with very few opportunities for summer enrichment, growth, and nurture. Since then ARM has grown to two locations throughout the state. We now also serve in Macon, Lee, Russell, and Chambers counties. In addition to out of state volunteers, many volunteers are from the local area including Auburn and Tuskegee University, several churches, and civic organizations.
ARM has grown into other areas of housing including renovating abandoned homes, working with veterans, and exploring new builds. Since 2012, we have been renovating Tuskegee Methodist Church into a missions outreach center we call the Tuskegee Hub. The day camp ministry expanded in 2012 by partnering with I Am My Brother’s Keeper (IAMBK) that hosts an after school tutoring ministry in Tuskegee.
Founded in 2014 as The Skylark School, the school originally operated out of Mountain View Church in Glenwood Springs. In 2021, we changed our name to Ambleside School Rocky Mountains (ASRM) and relocated to the newly-renovated historic schoolhouse on Main Street in downtown New Castle, Colorado. ASRM is an accredited K-8 private school organized as a Colorado non-profit corporation. We partner with Ambleside Schools International (ASI) and educate students based on Charlotte Mason’s philosophy and practice. ASI has schools all around the globe that provide this living education and strive to make it accessible to all. A living education empowers students to author lives that are full and free - rich in relationship to God, self, others, ideas, work, and the created world. It provides the tools needed to live well in all aspects of life - personal and professional, present and future. Our students grow in relationship with the knowledge of God, humankind, and the universe. They become people who give back to society, care for their kin, love their neighbors, and cultivate rich intellectual and spiritual lives. ASRM educates students from all across the Roaring Fork and Colorado River Valleys including the towns of Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, New Castle, Silt, Rifle, and Parachute, Colorado.
Awana is a world-wide nonprofit ministry focused on providing Bible-based evangelism and discipleship solutions for ages 2-18. As the global leader in child and youth discipleship, Awana gives children the opportunity to know, love and serve Jesus.
History of Awana
Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry with fully integrated evangelism and long-term discipleship programs for ages 2 to 18 that actively involves parents and church leaders. Each week, more than 4 million children and youth, 470,000 volunteers and 260 field staff take part in Awana in over 47,000 churches around the world. Offered through local churches, Awana reaches kids where they’re at and walks alongside them in their faith journey.
How did the Awana program begin
In 1941, the children's program at the North Side Gospel Center in Chicago laid the foundation for the principles of Awana. Lance Latham, North Side's senior pastor, collaborated with the church's youth director, Art Rorheim, to develop weekly clubs that would appeal to churched and nonchurched kids. As a pioneer in children’s ministry, Art created new and innovative ways to reach kids with the gospel and lead them to know, love and serve Jesus Christ.
Other churches learned about the success of the program and inquired about its availability. In 1950, Latham and Rorheim founded Awana as a parachurch organization.
By 1960, 900 churches had started Awana programs. By 1972, Awana began its first international club in Bolivia. Today, children and youth in 104 countries participate in Awana programs and millions of adults are alumni. Awana serves churches from 100 different denominations.
Across the globe, Awana gives kids from every background and cultural setting a place to belong, build confidence and grow in faith. Awana continually expands to make disciples by pursuing new locations and partnerships. God is using the ministry of Awana in prisons, refugee camps, slums and other hard to reach places around the world.
Since 1914, Bethesda Mission has been a missionary arm of the local church, reaching out to men, women, and children of all races, nationalities, and creeds, providing the poor and homeless with shelter, food, clothing, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, and discipling them in the Christian life.
A soft pillow, a warm meal, and peace from life’s storms are what Bethesda offers the men, women, and children who walk through our doors. Our walls offer safety from chaos-filled homes and noisy streets, and our hospitality returns a small portion of the grace we’ve been given to the people we serve. A brightly lit green cross is the trade-mark symbol of our flagship facility at 611 Reily Street in downtown Harrisburg. This city icon defines our driving passion – to introduce others to the power and love of Jesus Christ. Equipping each person with tools for life is the aim of Bethesda’s community re-entry blueprint. From learning to balance a checkbook to finding a Christ centered, nurturing church, these foundational skills help existing guests lead lives of character and great purpose.

Military teens move an average of seven times during their school-age years. Imagine having to start over at a new school every other year, all while trying to figure out who you are and where you belong. Along with that, imagine the fear for a deployed parent and the heartache of missing your mom and dad when it’s your birthday, Christmas break, or even high school graduation.
Yet, they are the kids who, because of the challenges they face, have the potential to become our resilient leaders of tomorrow.
Club Beyond has been ministering to military teens for over 40 years.

What is the Forum of Christian Leaders?
The Forum of Christian Leaders (FOCL) exists to unite, equip, and resource global evangelical leaders toward the end of world evangelism and the renewal of the biblical church. Our ministry is primarily focused on Europe and consists of the following four quadrants:
European Leadership Forum Annual Meeting : A yearly, weeklong gathering of 700 evangelical leaders from over 50 countries; held each year in Wisła, Poland
Forum Initiatives : Spiritual and leadership development opportunities that provide intensive, specialized training for small groups of evangelical leaders
Forum Movement : Local and regional events organized by European Leadership Forum participants that provide training and outreach throughout Europe in native languages (Example: Eastern European Leadership Forum )
Forum Global : Strategies that share the European church’s leadership lessons with the global church, includes online media library and free webinars (Example: FOCL Online Resources )
Many still view Europe through the lens of its Christian past. However, less than 2% of today’s Europeans identify as evangelicals while nearly 18% are atheists or agnostics. European Christian leaders are often overwhelmed and isolated. We aim to serve and encourage these leaders as they seek to be faithful to their callings.
Moreover, we recognize that Europe has enjoyed unique influence on the international stage. Many movements have European origins, including the Renaissance, the Scientific Revolution, and Postmodernism. These ideologies have shaped modern cultures, sparked global conflicts, and informed generations of leaders. We believe that to invest in Europe is to invest in the world.

EMPOWERING: We are empowering, realizing that people are more important than projects. We will make a significant effort to create a sustainable community, where we develop people not just programs.
COMPASSIONATE: We are compassionate, learning to love our neighbor and serve rather than being served, realizing there are needs that are always greater than our own, so being faithful to give even when it does not seem there is enough to give.
COLLABORATIVE: We are collaborative, setting aside our own agenda to work with each other and other like-minded organizations with common purpose.
ADVENTUROUS: We are adventurous, wild, fun and slightly crazy, pushing the boundaries and expecting God to move in extraordinary ways.
