Kansas City’s newest LGBTQ nondenominational church
Pastor Dan

Welcome from Pastor Dan


“Welcome to Peace River’s website! We are glad you took the time to drop in and check us out. Our hope is that you will capture the vision of our church and better understand who we are, what we are doing, and why. Please feel free to contact us and we will welcome the opportunity to answer any and all questions you might have regarding our ministry.

The Church fellowship of Peace River is made up of people from many different walks of life including religious backgrounds, cultural origins, ethnicities, academics, vocational training, generations, and orientations, to name a few.

Our worship services are structured with simplicity in mind. Each service begins with a time of praise and worship to God followed by prayers of the people. We break in the middle of our service for a time of fellowship over pastries and fruit with Coffee or Tea. This provides a time for all to become better acquainted with each other and catch up on the past week.

We respond to the Spirit of God in each service by our giving of resources and actions to each other, our community, and to God. We conclude each service with a time of reflection and remembrance as we share Holy Communion (Eucharist). Many have expressed how comfortable and welcome they are with the informality of structure, the blending of traditional with contemporary, and the connectedness they feel with each other. Most significant is the love and devotion that each service reflects to God and the love that is felt by God’s presence.

Our theology is progressive in the sense that we focus on God’s grace, mercy, and love and not the judgmental elements of damnation, condemnation, and the labeling of people. We do believe that there is a natural and spiritual consequence for human action as well as acts of divine and human forgiveness.

If you are searching for a venue in which you can grow spiritually, an environment that will sustain and challenge your faith, an opportunity to be free from your past and present, then Peace River is for you! You will find us to be a community of believers who know that God’s love affirms, embraces, and develops each of us for living a life of peace.
