In 2008, Michael and Amanda Montgomery began dreaming of planting a brand new live-giving church with one goal in mind; to love people unconditionally and lead them to life in Christ. The vision for Pursue Life Church came to them in January 2014 while they were praying about God’s direction in their life and ministry for that year. God spoke to their hearts: meet the people where they are, share Jesus Christ with them, teach them the importance of being together in love and unity, teach them faith in My Word, and instruct them to love and serve others with excellence. They saw a church on the incline, continually pursuing life, continually reaching beyond, full of faith, hope, love and transforming power.
On August 24, 2014, Michael and Amanda, along with 20 others, began their journey together. The primary focus, for the remainder of 2014, was on building a team of leaders with a passion to love God and love people.
