CHURCHES // FLORIDA
Our church began in 1997 as a student organization, Jacksonville Christian Life, at the University of North Florida, with the vision of connecting college students to Jesus Christ and His Church.
Almost 10 years later, our pastors began dreaming of launching a next-generational church that would focus on reaching young singles, young families, and the young-at-heart in the broader Jacksonville community. What is today Awaken Church launched in 2008.
Since the launch of Awaken, our passion remains fixed on effectively mobilizing young people and the young-at-heart to God-driven action and empower them to live mature and missional lives. That ongoing vision, passion, and burden is why we exist.
WHERE TO FIND US
We meet on Sunday mornings at 10:30am. We would be honored to have you join us!
