REACHING | BUILDING | CONNECTING

At Ridgecrest, we believe that God has called us to REACH the lost, BUILD the believer, and CONNECT the people of God to the mission and purpose of God. We want to help YOU find YOUR place in that mission!

Psalm 104:24

O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures

The Ridgecrest media ministry exists as a microphone from right here in Dothan to the world, as well as a way to enhance the church’s work to people in our church and community.  This area is absolutely essential to helping our members and guests have a positive Sunday experience, whether in person or online.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

Our sports and recreation ministry at Ridgecrest is twofold: First, we believe fitness and recreation are powerful, often untapped tools that can be used to reach the non-believer and the unchurched. Second, we believe recreation is a needed outlet for our members to benefit themselves physically and to make stronger ties with each other. If you have a heart for recreation, sports and fitness, we have a place for you!
