A note from our lead pastor
Here at the Ridge, we believe church is more than a place to show up every Sunday. “Church” is you and me—a dynamic movement of God’s people striving to live the Jesus life in a world desperate for His grace and mercy.
Ridge Kids provides weekly programming and events for children from birth through 5th grade to learn about God’s love for them.
Ridge Students offers great opportunities to get to know other middle and high school students and grow in your relationship with Jesus. We break out into small groups and studies, go on retreats, get crazy with events, gather during the week, and serve as a team — all to pursue God and love people!
Embrace, our special needs ministry, creates opportunities for the entire family to worship and study God’s Word.
The Table exists to inspire young adults – college, 20s, and 30s – to pursue Jesus and be part of God’s mission in Austin and around the world.
Ridge Men offers opportunities to connect with other guys who are working to be intentional about their walk with God.
