The Greenhouse Culture is a budding movement of those seeking to live by faith, hope, and love. Our community seeks to run on things like generosity, patience, peace, and truth. We are learning to put the teachings of Jesus into practice.
Our mission is to grow disciples who come together often and dig deep, in order to plant a culture that serves our city and reproduces disciples.
We invite you to join the movement.
We do not belong to any denomination, nor are we affiliated in any way with the masonic rite, or free masonry. We simply meet in a former masonic temple.
The Greenhouse Culture will be governed by a set of bylaws as directed by Resurrection Life Church International.
The Greenhouse Culture is lead by a team of elders. As an elder, Pastor Jared serves as senior pastor and his main responsibility is to cast vision, while the other elders work to execute the vision, encourage, counsel, and protect the church.
Jared Scholz – Senior Pastor
Pastor Jared serves as senior pastor. Jared and his wife Mandy were married in 1999 and take great joy in their five lovely children. Jared enjoys hanging out with his family, preaching, teaching, songwriting, playing rock and roll, hearing others play rock and roll, snowboarding, learning, reading, remodeling homes and on occasion, all at the same time.
In the Fall of 2002 after earning a BA in Education from KU, Jared joined a team to plant Life Church in Olathe, Kansas.

Jacob Atwood – The Loft: Middle School & High School
Jacob leads our hangout for middle/ high school students called The Loft.Jacob is a committed and intentional leader. He has a gift to teach, and lead people.
Neighborhood Church Leaders
These wild people lead Neighborhood Churches. They are motivated to help people follow Jesus. They seek to see people saved by Jesus, changed by Jesus, and on mission with Jesus. They primarily do this by developing relationships and intentionally helping people take the next step Jesus has for them.
We believe that the Old and New Testament are the inspired and perfect revelation of God’s truth (in original writings). They are the final say for faith, truth, and life. We believe they were and are currently breathed by God through the Holy Spirit.
We believe there is one God, the God of the Bible, existing in 3 persons. We believe that the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are 3 distinctive persons who are wrapped up in one primary nature. We believe that all 3 are eternal, present everywhere, invincible, infinitely wise, infinitely holy, infinitely loving, and infinitely knowing.
We believe that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. He has existed from eternity and stepped into human history as the Messiah about 2000 years ago. He was born from a virgin, lived sinlessly, died as a substitute for all those who believe in Him, and physically came back to life. We believe He is now exalted, seated in heaven as believers’ high-priest and intercessor.
We look forward to the day that Jesus returns to this Earth to judge all men and women. We believe that the wicked will pay for their sin in hell, and the righteous will inherit eternal life, because Jesus paid for their sin with His blood.
We believe that apart from God, all humans are depraved and unable to fix their sin problem.
We believe that salvation is a free gift from God, which is only granted through the blood of Jesus, which forgives sin and is posted to our account through personal faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that all spiritual gifts are to be functioning in God’s church today, just as they were in the early church.
We believe the local church is God’s prized bride, and it is made up of all those who have been born-again through Jesus. We believe that the church is to meet regularly and relationally. We believe that we are to live as missionaries every day because the church is the way in which the gospel is spread to the culture. We believe the church is to be a living, breathing organism, breathing in through corporate worship, study, and meetings, and exhaling through service and evangelism.
Baptism and Communion
We follow Jesus by being fully immersed in water through Baptism in the name of the Father, son, and Holy Spirit. We also obey Jesus by taking communion regularly. These two ordinances help us to remember that we live brand new lives through Jesus’ atoning death on the cross.
