Frequently asked questions

Curious what Preston Trail is all about? Here are answers to some common questions.

What denomination is Preston Trail?

Preston Trail is a non-denominational, Bible-believing community of people who are focused on helping people find and follow Jesus Christ.

Preston Trail is part of the Willow Creek Association (WCA).
WCA is a not-for-profit ministry with more than 10,000 Member Churches from 90 denominations and 35 countries. They represent a wide variety of sizes, denominations and backgrounds, and are ministering in literally every corner of the world. As they pursue their own unique, God-given vision for ministry in their community, Member Churches confirm a shared commitment to Christ and a passion for reaching lost people.

Is Preston Trail a “seeker church”?

If by “seeker church” you mean one that compromises or waters down the message of the gospel, then Preston Trail is certainly not a seeker church. But if by “seeker church” you mean a group of people who have a laser focus to be like Jesus in giving up our preferences, desires and comfort in order to share God’s grace in a way that allows people who are far from God to hear it and relate to it and respond to it in a life-transforming way—then yes, Preston Trail is definitely a seeker church!
