SUNDAYS 9:00 and 10:45AM


To help people discover belonging in community is a part of Discover Church’s mission. But, for the Schwent’s, community is more than just a strategy to build a church…it is a vital component to their everyday life. Whether it is during their monthly date nights, being silly with their three kids (Micah, Carson & Gunner) or sharing stories & laughs with friends, Jernigan & Jessica love to live life to the fullest with others!

Jernigan spent 11 years as a Pastor at Abundant Life Church. Over the last few years of that tenure, God began putting a dream in his and Jessica’s hearts to start a new, life-giving church in the Northland of Kansas City where people could discover a community of people to laugh with. To create memories with. To do life with. A place to belong.

With the blessing & support of Abundant Life, Jernigan & Jessica moved to the Northland in June of 2017 to pursue their dream of building a church where people could discover belonging in community in a way that has been so vital to their own lives. Their hope is that through community, people might also begin to discover the life & purpose that God has for their lives.
