God gave Ricky and Krista a vision to plant a life-giving church in New York City way back in 2004 (around the same time they met in college in Jacksonville, FL). He’s a native New Yorker (from Bronx, NY) and she’s a Washingtonian (originally from Seattle).
Their journey of building church has taken them across the U.S. – from Florida to Washington state – and even a short stay in Europe. While their journey has been filled with steps of faith and adventure, they’ve also encountered resistance and challenges battling grief, suffering through loss, dealing with addiction & depression, and even failures in their marriage.
Through those experiences, God forged something deeper and more meaningful than either of them could have ever imagined. God had purpose that was more than and beyond what either Krista or Ricky would have designed for themselves. These experiences became their personal “meta” story.
God has used their experiences to shape the heart and vision for Meta Church. It’s through this lens that Krista and Ricky are committed to proclaiming a message of hope, truth, grace, and transformation as authentically and vulnerably as they lead others into their own “meta” story.
New York City is one of the most influential cities in the world and its potential for good is limitless! People from all over the world move here in pursuit of their dreams and in search of life-changing opportunities. This city is truly the intersection where the world meets.
We believe we have an incredible opportunity as a church to tap into that potential by helping people like you step into and experience the “more than” and “beyond” that Jesus has for you. For us, it’s about change and transformation in your life that produces change and transformation in your world.
When we change this city, we change the world!
