Announcing the Freedom Rising Salons
Building on the success of the Revolutionary Love Conference, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new Freedom Rising Salons! Throughout the year, we’ll offer more regular gatherings—each organized around a particular topic—putting our senior minister, Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, in conversation with leaders who will deepen your engagement with that month’s theme. This year-long virtual conversation series will feature thought leaders, organizers, artists and modern prophets reflecting on crucial justice issues, and what we all can do to rise and meet them.Learn More

A six-alarm fire spread from the building next door and destroyed our beautiful sanctuary. But no fire can stop revolutionary love! Learn how we’re rising from the ashes, and what you can do to help.
Find Your People!
Middle hosts small groups for everything from beginning ukulele lessons, to Queer Black Men in the Middle and our Voting Reform team. And all of them have options to gather virtually! Join the groups that best fit your passion, and the love you want to offer the world.
How do you change the world? First, you change yourself. Part of how we fulfill our commitment to God’s gospel of liberation is by training leaders with the skills you’ll need to bring freedom wherever you go. Thousands have participated in our digital courses. Will join them?
What We Believe
Middle is on a mission to reclaim and reframe Christianity—to realign our faith with Jesus’ teaching and take it back from the folks who have stolen it. We do this work joyfully, fueled by the Spirit, and strengthened by the community we create with one another.
Celebrate LOVE with Us!
Middle’s worship is a joyful, diverse celebration that gives a taste of what heaven feels like—an experience to soothe your soul and fill you with God’s liberatory fire! Every week is different, but what remains constant is how we tell the story of love through transformative art.
Faith comes alive when our love radiates outwards. At Middle, we’re committed to building an intersectional movement that both addresses the particular needs of different communities and unites us in common solidarity. This is God’s work, and we hope you’ll join us in it.
