Led by Lauren Vignec, as lay mission developer, Fear No Evil strives to end isolation, depression, toxic conflict, paranoia, anxiety, resentment and rage. The church is dedicated to ex-prisoners and addicts.  We promote consistent street dance events, open to anyone. These events focus on authentic mutual support, so that participants level up in both dance and life.

Jubilee Collective

We not only affirm the sacredness of LGBTQIA+, two-spirited, and other oppressed peoples who have historically been hurt by the church, we center their voice and lived experiences whenever possible and welcome their leadership.
