We help prepare you to change your world.

Quite simply, world change happens when you follow Jesus.  Cultivating Ethos is the work and result of following the Great Commission.  Through Biblical teaching with current application and tools and new mission opportunities, we help followers of Jesus practically live out their faith in their City or wherever God calls them to go.   We are a 501(c) 3 non-profit and supported by people like you.   

Our first step was to create a radio/podcast ministry.  Our next steps are to leverage this to provide missional support to groups who need your help and need the Gospel of Christ.

Our mission is to make disciples who make disciples who make disciples...  we believe this is the greatest endeavor ever given to mankind. 

About Cultivating Ethos

Cultivating Ethos is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.  

Ethos: the distinguishing character, sentiment, moral nature, or guiding beliefs of a person, group, or institution.

Ethos is essentially the reputation of a particular community or group of people.  We believe the Church is to have a particular ethos that is distinctive, tangible, and true. This ethos doesn't just happen, it must be cultivated.  

Cultivate: (from the word "culture") to grow in a prepared medium.

Jesus, when describing His followers, said that they are the salt and light of the earth. He is saying that His followers have a practical and positive influence, not just on the members of the Church, but on the entire culture. Practically speaking, followers of Jesus Christ cultivate the community. They are not irrelevant or disconnected.

What is the "prepared medium" that we grow a culture in? The teachings of Jesus Christ, our mentor, Rabbi, teacher, and most of all, the savior.  Therefore, we must consider Christ's direction to all of his followers in light of the mission statement he made for us.

All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make [cultivate] disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey [ethos] everything I have commanded you.”
— Jesus of Nazareth
