A vision for Midtown-Daytona Beach.We are planting in Midtown Daytona Beach because we feel called to make gospel impact that will empower the city. Midtown is the heart of the city and we pray that men and women from many different backgrounds that love Jesus and are motivated to do good works because of the gospel.
Identity Church is a Christ-centered,
Gospel-driven, Multi-Ethnic church being planted in Daytona Beach, Florida.
our mission is to fight to make God known by living all of life in christ, in Daytona Beach, to the world.
we are what we value:
WE BELIEVE THAT THE BIBLE IS TRUE, AUTHORITATIVE AND PERFECT FOR UNDERSTANDING, CORRECTION AND GROWTH.
WE HAVE BEEN ADOPTED AS CHILDREN OF GOD, THEREFORE WE ARE BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO JESUS AND EACH OTHER. OUR CONNECTION TO CHRIST DRIVES OUR DESIRE TO LIVE AS FAMILY.
AS WE FOLLOW CHRIST, WE OBEY HIS COMMAND TO MAKE DISCIPLES.
CONNECTORS & REBUILDERS
THE GOSPEL HAS THE POWER TO MAKE ENEMIES FRIENDS AND STRANGERS FAMILY.
WE WERE CREATED AS BEINGS THAT WOULD MULTIPLY. OUR LIVES ARE FILLED WITH MISSIONAL MULTIPLICATION.
THE CHURCH WAS BIRTHED WITH THE IDEA OF UNITY IN DIVERSITY. WE PURSUE BEING MULTI-ETHNIC BECAUSE IT IS A REPRESENTATION OF NOT ONLY WHAT WE SEE IN THE BIBLE, BUT WHAT WE SEE IN OUR CITY.
IN THE CITY
WE GLORIFY GOD BY LIVING OUR LIVES FULLY IN HIM, WHERE WE ARE. OUR SENTNESS AND PRESENCE IN DAYTONA IS APART OF OUR IDENTITY AND CALLING.
Byron is passionate about Jesus and His Mission. Every ministry that he and his family serve in reflect that passion. After pursuing a call to church planting and pastoral ministry, he and his family moved to Memphis, TN. to be trained and developed through the Fellowship Memphis' Pastoral Residency Program. After completing the residency, the Cogdell's transitioned back to their home Daytona to plant a gospel-centered, disciple-making, connecting church. Byron has a Bachelors of Arts in Public Relations and is completing his Masters of Biblical & Theological Studies from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL.
