To Reach People Who Reach People

Why the Talleys?

Over the past few years both Michael and Dale felt God beginning to call them to Denver to play a part in reaching a city with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  After many months of prayer and counsel they accepted what God was leading them to do and began the journey to plant a church in a community in desperate need of Jesus.

Michael and Dale are excited to spend 9 months in training and preparation at the Orchard Church Planting Residency in Denver, CO. They will use this time to gain familiarity with their new city, acclimate to the culture, develop a launch team and learn from the wisdom of those who have planted before.

“I am excited to be partnering with Michael and Dale to advance the work of the Gospel in the Greater Denver area. I have had the privilege of ministry partnership with them both over the years and have been personally impacted and challenged. Michael’s giftings, skill set and personal faith journey are clear indicators that God has been preparing him for this task for a long time.”

“Michael is a great leader and passionate preacher of the Gospel. Our church is thrilled to be getting behind him as he plants in Denver. I believe he is going to be a 5-star leader in this great city.”

core values

These are the filters through which we achieve our mission, strategy and vision.

Uncommon Love
We want to love people the way Jesus loved people.

John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
Compelling Community
We want to experience life together.

Hebrews 10:24-25 “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another.”
Relational Evangelism
We want to build relationships in order to build trust.

Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes.”
Radical Discipleship
We want to live life devoted to something greater than ourselves.

Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
Global Gospel
We want to invest in people on our street and around the world.

Psalm 96:3 “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.”
Extreme Generosity
We want to give in a way that doesn’t make sense.
