In September, 2011, with the help of an enthusiastic launch team and the backing of several churches around the country, the Roams planted One Family Church, a vibrant and diverse non-denominational church. In just a few short years, the church has grown to over 1,200 people in multiple locations, and is making a powerful and positive impact in the lives of the congregation and in the surrounding community.
