Mike and Martha Tifft - 2nd Chance Christian Fellowship, Virginia, Minnesota
We are a new church plant in Virginia, MN with a special emphasis on ministry to poor, the lonely, the rejected, the struggling, the hurting and just anyone who needs a loving and accepting Christian family to be part of. We welcome people from a variety of Christian backgrounds and teach only the Bible. Love God and love people is our philosophy. We are also very non traditional with Friday evening gatherings rather than Sunday morning and a very interactive service that feels more like getting together with friends than sitting in a church. We are mission minded with a goal to reach out to "the least of these" as Jesus said and give them a place to be loved and to learn about God.
