How did all of this start?

RealLife Lake Chelan began with a belief that an all-powerful God could accomplish an impossible goal. 

THE STORY

…four couples decided to live out a dream we viewed as impossible. At an informal gathering over dinner, Pastor Kyle shared a quote with this group that God had used to captivate and dominate his attention:
“If you’re not daring to believe God for the impossible, you’re sleeping through some of the best parts of your Christian life.”​
-Steven Furtick, Founder/Pastor Elevation Church

We began to brainstorm and challenge each other as to what impossible goals we could set that only would be accomplished if God intervened. As we prayed and planned, it became clear that He was moving us to start a brand new church in the Lake Chelan Valley for people who don’t like church…people who are far from God. It seemed like an impossibility then and still continues to intimidate us to this day.

…spent creating, planning, arguing, praying, searching and finally agreeing, we launched RealLife Lake Chelan on Sept. 16, 2012. We were thankfully overwhelmed to see a couple hundred people make their way into the auditorium at Chelan High School. 

What seemed like an impossibility just a year before, God had made a powerful reality. That was just the beginning. We are confident that God has many more impossible tasks to accomplish in the Lake Chelan Valley. We are excited to depend on Him as we help those who are far from God find Real Life in Christ.

A handful of Brewster couples were meeting and praying with the elders of RealLife Lake Chelan about the potential of bringing RealLife to the Quad City area. We had several small gatherings before the decision was made to move forward with a Brewster Campus. The couples from Brewster created a Leadership Team and held several larger gatherings to inform people about the potential of a RealLife Campus in the Brewster area. 
 
The Leadership Team then went on a nationwide search to find a Campus Pastor. After two candidates weren’t quite the right fit, we hit a crossroads. The elders of RealLife were supportive, but also hesitant to push forward as there hadn’t been a lot of ground made in the two-year build up for a potential launch. But God always provides (normally when we least expect it) and Billy Bosch’s name was presented to us by another Brewster community member. Billy and Joyce came out for a visit and the glass slipper fit perfectly.
 
From then on, Billy and the Leadership Team began moving forward with the plans for the RealLife Brewster Campus to launch. On September 9th, 2018, the 2+ years of planning and praying for RealLife in the Quad Cities began! The Mission of RealLife extended to the Quad Cities area to help people who are far from God find RealLife in Christ.

…as we prepare to move to our new, permanent location in The Community Center at Lake Chelan!
