THE ACTIVE CHURCH STORY
Active Church was founded on a call from God to reach people with the message of hope found in Jesus. In 2014. Lead Pastor Adam Magaña and his wife Stacy, felt an overwhelming sense that God wanted them to begin preparing for a new season in the Central Coast of CA. Over the next several years, Adam and Stacy began taking the necessary steps and God began opening doors for them to plant a life-giving church in one of the greatest cities in America – San Luis Obispo, CA. In 2016, Active Church began its launch process in partnership with the Association of Related Churches (ARC) which has helped over 1,000 church planters reach their city for Jesus over the past 20 years. The ARC provided funding, coaching, and spiritual direction for Pastor Adam and Stacy during the launch phase of Active Church. Five years later God has now established this local church in the heart of SLO County and we know that the best is yet to come! Pastor Adam and Stacy are originally from Bakersfield, CA. They now live in the Central Coast with their three children, Hadley, Brixton, and Easton, and their Chocolate Labradoodle Olive.
