About Us

All Are Welcome

Seriously. And by welcome, we mean that everybody deserves the opportunity to hear, experience, understand, and respond to the Good News about what Jesus has done and offers to us. No matter who you are, what you've done, where you've been, or how long you've been there, Lifehouse welcomes you to come and hear how Jesus can change your life.

Core Values

IT'S NOT ABOUT US

It’s never about our preference but always about our mission, and the mission is to reach people with the Gospel.

HONOR EVERYONE

Everyone is made in the image of God and is valuable, matters, and will be honored at Lifehouse.

WORK AS IF IT ALL DEPENDS ON US, PRAY AS IF IT ALL DEPENDS ON GOD.

We give our best effort in preparation and quality, and trust God for the outcome.

DISCIPLESHIP THROUGH RELATIONSHIP

We will intentionally create atmospheres and opportunities for people to be in and grow through relationships.

BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING

We will not hoard what God blesses us with; we will be gracious in giving, knowing we reap what we sow.

FOR OUR CITY

We will actively engage our city and contribute in ways that makes it better for all.

John & Kristen Ware

Lead Pastors

John & Kristen Ware were born and raised in Newport News, VA, so it’s no surprise they love the 757. After 10 years of serving as youth pastors in various places, they felt a call to start a new church whose sole purpose is to invite ALL people to live an uncommon life by following Jesus, doing life together, getting in the game, and leaving a legacy.

Fun Facts: John is a fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars (and no, he’s not the only fan in the 757) and is an advocate for people who stutter. Kristen is an artist in her own right and enjoys being a full-time mom to their three adorable, lively boys: Jaxson, Judah, and Dallas.
