Why Marshalltown? This is my (Dylan)hometown, and quickly is becoming my wife's. We believe that Marshalltown is one of the most unique places in the United States. We have a rich cultural diversity (ethnicity, socio-economic, business, community, etc.) that we are stoked to live in and raise our kids in. We feel incredibly privileged that God would allow us to tell a city we love, about the Jesus that loves this city far more than we can even comprehend. My friend Micahn Carter inspired us with these words, "A church that is being a church can love its' city back to prosperity".
