The Porch is a nationwide, young adult ministry, with a sole purpose to reach all young adults. The Porch exists to call any and every young adult to see Jesus and to surrender fully to life with Him. The Porch uses local churches to host service schedules and events. The Porch Live Springfield is hosted by Park Crest Baptist Church but exists to provide an opportunity for all young adults to gather, worship and become more like Christ in the greater Springfield, MO region.

  • Tuesday Nights

    • I am able to commit to team meetings at 6PM each Tuesday, and am able to stay until 9:30PM. 

    • I recognize that Tuesday evenings are a time of outreach and service to Porch attendees. It is not a time for Porch leaders to focus on hanging out with friends.

  • I am able to commit to serving at a minimum of (2) Porch Social events a year (potentially non-Tuesday nights).

  • I will commit to reaching out to my Porch Follow-Up (assigned guest) within a week of being assigned. 

  • Communication 

    • I understand that I will communicate with my Porch leader in a timely fashion if I am not able to attend a Porch event or Tuesday night.
