About Red Dirt Church

You don’t need to live where red dirt is, to do what Red Dirt does

Organic communities can spring up anywhere. When we keep it simple, we can focus on what matters most.

Warren Crank

Founder of Red Dirt

Having pastored churches in both city and regional contexts, and continuing invest heavily in chaplaincy and mission, I have longed to create a simple way for Jesus’ church to spring up anywhere.

Red Dirt Church is a way to bring the gospel to places that don’t suit buildings and budgets, but who want to grow disciples anyway.

Join us as Red Dirt Churches continue to spring up everywhere, bringing Christian community where there is none.

I was going through a particularly difficult time in my life when friends of mine started up a Red Dirt Church. They invited me over for a meal and a chat. Our children played while we talked about life, about the bible and about God. Each week I showed up for Red Dirt and each week I felt my connection with Our Almighty Father grow.

I am so thankful to have taken that first step and shared a meal, much like we had done previously, but this time with intention. Red Dirt changed my life. I love the concept and the friendship and guidance I received helped me considerably through some very tough times and ultimately led me to the Lord and the faith I have today.
