Seek to multiply by planting churches and training leaders

This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you – Titus 1:5

We are thankful to God that he has brought forth Mercy of Christ Fellowship Church and Congress Heights Community Church, two church plants from ARC. We also joyfully partner with the Crete Collective to establish gospel churches in distressed and neglected black and brown communities.

Mercy of Christ Fellowship Church.

Mercy of Christ Fellowship Church is located in Washington D.C. Mercy of Christ Fellowship Church is a diverse group of sinful people that have found eternal mercy in Jesus Christ. They are committed to walking with God by praying, preaching, and living by the Word of God. And would love for you to visit them on a Sunday morning for their 10:00 AM worship service. Learn More

Congress Heights Community Church.

Congress Heights Community Church exists to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ among its neighbors and throughout the nations. They are a group of believers seeking to obey the Great Commandment (love God, love neighbor) and fulfill the Great Commission (make disciples). Joshua Roulhac is the Lead Pastor at Congress Heights Community Church (CHCC) in southeast Washington, DC. He is the husband to Jessica and the father to LJ (Lil Josh). He completed his church planting residency at Anacostia River Church in March 2021. Learn More

The Crete Collective.

The Crete Collective exists to establish gospel churches in distressed and neglected black and brown communities. The Church invests significant effort in planting new churches and revitalizing failing ones across the United States. But there remain ethnic and poor communities largely untouched by this gospel work. While we need missionaries in every country and churches planted in every community, The Crete Collective believes some of the Church’s effort must focus on those who are left out and overlooked.
