Tribes Church has a vision to be community of God-dreamers from every nation, tribe, tongue, and station. We are artists, creatives, entrepreneurs, stay home moms, factory workers, city employees, students, business people, teachers, pastors, community leaders, missionaries. In a phrase–We are World Changers.
We strive to be a church that embodies the dream of God; A people of miracles, transformation, imagination, creativity, and love. We long to bear the name of Jesus, never to be ashamed. This requires risk, danger, and faith. It won’t be easy. But it will be worth it. “The church was never supposed to be known by its grip on tradition but the church is supposed be known by its love for humanity.” – Erwin McManus
Three dreams intersect and Tribes Church is born! Tribes Church’s first worship service was Oct. 12, 2014 with 253 adults and children in attendance. “This is the fruition of a dream,” says Pastor Dawn Scott Damon, co-founder and co-pastor of Tribes Church. A dream that started 16 years ago with Lead Pastor, Julian Newman and in another time and place a dream in the heart of Co-Pastor, Dawn Damon. Together through unlikely paths and unforeseen circumstances, their God-Dreams intersected and culminated into what you see here today. In 2001-2007 God was working in his divine Way in the hearts and lives of his people. Pastor Julian Newman and his wife Tiffany and Pastor Dawn Scott Damon were serving together on a ministry team at a large local church. Pastor Dawn immediately became a close friend and Grandma to their 3 daughters who were far from the native home of Sacramento CA. “We began to sense that the three of us would be in ministry together but we could never have imagined the adventure God would have us on.” Throughout the next few years, their lives took separate paths but the seed to minister together had been planted by the Holy Spirit. In God’s perfect time, he watered the seed and soon a harvest would follow.
