What is the Jesus Pattern Network?
We are a mission organization that equips followers of Jesus to reimagine the church as "sent people" who:
  • Embrace the ambassador lifestyle
  • Engage in spiritual conversations
  • Discover disciplable people
  • Unleash a network of connected churches
Our Strategy

Matthew Parties: To connect with people who are not yet followers of Jesus or who want to follow him more effectively and begin to understand their spiritual journey

Gatherings:  To create “X Groups” that connect people to Jesus in a way that fosters obedience while reducing religious & cultural white noise. To create “X cellerate” Groups to identify and equip potential missional Christians.

Connected Churches: To practice living as Ambassadors of Jesus in authentic community that emerges from the harvest or through existing churches.

Our Values

* Reliance on the Holy Spirit
* Engaging in Spiritual Conversations
* Spending more time with fewer people
* Encouraging intentional discipleship and multiplication
* Practicing loving accountability
* Fostering authentic community

Overflow in Love


Are you curious about knowing Jesus in a personal way? We would love to hear your story.
Want to learn how you can become an ambassador for Jesus in your context? Let's talk!
Is your church, organization, or gathering interested in launching your disciple-making movement?


The Movement

What does the movement mean to us? It means we want you to explore, ask questions, find hope and love, and adopt the pattern of Jesus as your own. Here at Jesus Pattern, we want people who have little to no spiritual background to grow their curiosity and love for Jesus and pattern their life after his. We're here to create an environment that overflows with love for Jesus and each other.

I have found a place at Orchard Church. It's like coming home again where the people are so warm and friendly and are genuinely concerned about you. Our pastor steps aside every Sunday allowing the Holy Spirit to use him as a "suit of working clothes." I cannot wait for Sunday to come!

We've never been part of a church that's just getting started, so this is all new territory for us. The bottom line is, it's AWESOME! It's incredible to see God at work, bringing people together and making the pieces fall into place.

Orchard has been like a bonus prize for me. I fell in love with a man named Stephen who invited me to attend this church and I have fallen in love with Christ all over again because of this church and Phil Pike's gift of communicating God's love and grace.

What drew me to Orchard were the strong family relationships. I grew up in church all my life, but did not know Christ Himself. He was so misrepresented in the religious 'Christianity' I knew. When I came to Orchard I met genuine, imperfect people who loved God and loved each other with all their hearts,

I first came to Orchard when visiting my sister. For me, Orchard is an oasis where I can be refreshed with living water. Every Sunday I come with expectation of what message I will receive from our Lord. It is always great. It is a privilege to be part of Orchard!
