Welcome to Elevate City Church!

Whatever your age or life story, you are welcome! We're here to help people to know God, find freedom, discover their purpose, and to make a difference. How do we do that?


God wants to know us personally. More than just practicing religion, He wants a relationship with us. Our weekend services are where we focus on that relationship. Whether you're new to faith, have questions, or have been a Christ follower for a long time, our services are a safe place to know what it means to know God and grow closer to Him.


One of the ways God designed for us to live in freedom is to have people in our life to help us on the journey. Connecting with others in an Elevate City Small Group is a practical and enjoyable way to find that kind of life-changing community.


We're all an important part of God's plan and our life will never make sense until we discover our purpose. The Elevate City Growth Track is designed to help us take steps in the important process of discovering our purpose. The Growth Track happens monthly.


This is God's ultimate plan for our life - to make a difference in the lives of others. When we do, the Bible tells us that we will experience joy. Through the Elevate City Dream Team, we hope to connect every person to an opportunity to live out their calling by using their gifts and talents to serve others in the Church and the community.


Elevate City Church is a community of people whose purpose and goal is to love God and love people. We’re not experts. We’re far from perfect. Nobody looks the same and yet everybody belongs.

Each weekend at Elevate City Church you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Through the use of practical teaching and dynamic worship, we strive to present the message of Jesus Christ in a clear and relevant way.

At Elevate there is no dress code. We believe that God cares more about the condition of your heart than your outward appearance. Feel free to dress up or come in a pair of jeans and
your favorite t-shirt, whatever makes you comfortable.

If you are visiting for the first time: we won't embarrass you, call you out, or ask you to give money. We have an awesome team of people to help guide you and connect with you, but we realize that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” and that’s fine with us! So come in and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Whether you’re spiritually restless, discontent, new at discovering who God is, or a veteran of the faith, you’re welcome here.


Kyle and Bethany Mills

The vision for Elevate City Church emerged from the heart of nine year old Kyle Mills when he encountered the call of God to plant a church in the Fort Wayne area. The mission is to create a church in Fort Wayne that would be a home to all ages and represent the diversity of our beautiful city.

Our lead pastors, Kyle and Bethany Mills, have a heart to reach our city and beyond with the life-transforming message of Jesus. They believe in the next generation and value the wisdom and guidance of those that have gone before us.
