Common Life embodies what they claim with whole-hearted devotion and an authentic desire to join God’s work of love and restoration in their neighborhood of Colombia City. Its exciting to see what God has done and will continue to do as they embed in the neighborhood, forming and training people to live in the ways of Jesus wherever God sends them.
If you’ve been looking for a community of people who love God, love their neighbors, and love their neighborhood, a faith community with experienced leaders who care about the formation of people’s souls, the flourishing of their lives, and the nurturing of their dreams, then look closely at becoming a part of this community! I have lived in community with Matt and Amy Chapman and I can say firsthand that they are people who make everybody around them better people!”

Common Life is not only a gift to the neighborhood in which they inhabit, it is a gift to the Church as a whole. There is plenty of great thinking and theory floating through the minds and halls of academia, but there are few who are choosing to every day live the message they communicate. Rather than train more Church leaders for the pulpit, Common Life is training leaders for neighborhood...a leader the world desperately needs."
