The Front is a place in Manatee and Sarasota counties where young adults gather to be ignited, equipped and launched into their God given destiny. We experience true freedom, authentic worship, pure, challenging Word, genuine community and a call to intimacy with Jesus through prayer.
Our mandate is from Luke 1:17b -to Make ready a people (generation) prepared for The Lord. “A generation made ready!” Part of our DNA, or who we are as the Front includes prayer, worship, justice and community. Prayer is a lifestyle of intimacy. We believe anything we are called to must be conceived, birthed and sustained in a place of prayer. Philippians 4:6
“Worship is our response to God for who He is and what He has done; expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live. Worship is simply giving God His breath back.” Louie Giglio
Justice is when God’s kingdom comes and His will is done. We desire to partner with the heart of the Father for our city. Deut. 32:4
Community is the context we have been given to live out the gospel as the family of God. Community happens when devote ourselves to prayer, sound doctrine, fellowship and the breaking of bread daily. Acts 2:42
Besides our main worship gathering on Monday nights at 7pm, there are many opportunities at the Front, from homeless and inner-city outreach to guys and girls nights and family dinners. You can be involved in the coffee shop, prayer teams and worship bands.
We represent many different backgrounds and churches coming together compelled by our love for Christ and one another. The Front intentionally doesn’t meet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights so people can be plugged into their own fellowships.
It’s our prayer that the Front would have the same reputation as the disciples did, that “those who have turned the world upside down have come here also.” Acts 17:6 We desire to raise up young adults to run into their destiny whether that's in ministry or the marketplace. Welcome to the Front!
