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.
All Midtown small groups are currently on summer break. Check back in August to sign up for a group!

The Youth Ministry at Midtown is all about seeing Gospel transformation happen in the lives of our students. We believe that God’s transforming work comes through Jesus Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and our participation in community.
The Midtown Youth team is focused on helping students mature in their faith through understanding and living out of their identity as disciples of Jesus. As Matt. 4:19 explains, a disciple is someone who…
At Midtown Fellowship, we recognize that as we are transformed by the work of Jesus on our behalf we are compelled to become agents of this work in the lives of the people around us. We understand that loved people love people. The more we experience our own transformation, we cannot help but seek to encourage, support, and champion this process in the lives of the people around us. In this way, we seek to go on mission with Jesus for the sake of the world around us. We are compelled to act.
As we act, we are guided by our mission statement “To create a movement of gospel transformation through multiple congregations”. This statement guides our efforts in two specific ways as we seek to live missionally in the world around us.
We invite you to start living missionally. If you have questions about how to get involved please email Matt Ockerman.
These are opportunities where we invite all of our people to live missionally – as youth, families and groups.
