Madison, Wisconsin is a college town—one of the most liberal in the nation. “There’s more than 40,000 college students and most are unreached by the gospel,” says Rob, “So many people have tried to start churches here and failed. Maybe we should feel nervous about that, but, more than anything, we are energized.”
Rob and Lisa love college kids because they exist in a season of life where they can question everything and are often open to discussing spiritual issues. The family moved from Ames, Iowa to Madison to plant Doxa Church in the fall of 2018.
We couldn’t wait to get here and get started.
“We couldn’t wait to get here and get started. The amazing thing about planting in a college community is that we don’t just make converts, we make missionaries. Many who accept Jesus and see their lives change in college, then graduate and share the good news to others in their workplaces and neighborhoods.”
