At 12 South, our Sunday worship services are specifically designed for you to hear the Gospel. The Gospel message is of first importance for us. Jesus is the hero of the story and the centerpiece of the entire Bible. This is what it means to be Gospel centered: focused on who Jesus is, what He said, and what He did. The Gospel is at the center of everything we do.
Our 12 South congregation has its own dedicated pastor who works in union with the other Midtown pastors and a single leadership team that serves all congregations. Our hope is that 12 South would serve to create intimate venues for people to HEAR the gospel, CONNECT in biblical community and SERVE Jesus together. We hope to be part of the kingdom of God coming to the neighborhood of 12 South.
Join us for Sunday services at 9am, 11am and 5pm. Some helpful details for Sundays are:
At Midtown, we believe that gathering people in small groups for the purpose of discipleship is the most important thing we can do as a church. Jesus doesn’t call us to be church-goers. He calls us to be the church. He calls us to be His disciples and then He calls us to disciple others. He calls us to grow, change, and mature in the context of intentional relationship with other disciples.
We look at how Jesus discipled to find a biblical model for small group ministry. He used Scripture, told stories, and shared his whole life with his disciples. Eventually releasing them into the world to make disciples thus beginning a ministry of multiplication.
Midtown Small Groups work in the same way. We focus on studying the Word, developing relationships with each other, and maturing in our faith until we are ready to make disciples ourselves. Group leaders are trained in a Biblical model of making disciples. As group participants experience spiritual growth, they become ready to make disciples and branch from their group to start a new one. Disciples become disciple-makers, and the ministry of Jesus continues to spread.
Groups will begin the week of September 10. Find a group near you and register today!
Contrary to popular belief, men thrive in relationships with other men. Whether it’s a men’s retreat, big cookout, or focused small group discussion – men are spiritually helped by being with brothers in Christ. We believe that men need to be known and they need to know others. That’s relational pattern that they bible calls us to. Take a look at some of the things that our men are doing this fall!Learn More
Our women will gather together at regular times throughout the year to learn, grow and share their lives with each other. Sometimes it’s a women’s retreat, or big event, other times it may be a focused small group discussion. In every instance, it’s about growing in faith and connecting with other Midtown women.Learn More

Our Young Professionals groups desire to bridge the gap between Sunday mornings, which can be an intimidating time to meet new people, and small groups, which can be an intimidating place to dive deep into community with just a few others. The hope is that our gatherings will provide a place where people can make friends and make a difference in our city. It will gather twice a month- once for study/discipleship, and once for a service project.Learn More
