Who We Are
Brad and Jessica Hampton are the Lead Pastors at SOCO Church in Bentonville, Arkansas. They love God & love people. After serving in ministry together for the last 10 years, they have felt the call to start a life-giving church. Bentonville is a growing city that draws people from all over the world. With nearly 40% of the population unchurched & over 100% growth over the last 15 years, SOCO Church has a massive mission field. This is the time & place for God to build a life-giving church to reach the least, the last & the lost.
These are the values that we live by as a church. They are more than catchy phrases and cliché statements, they define who we are. We hope that as you visit for the first time, you feel each one of these in a powerful way by interacting with our members and staff.
You're probably asking, "So I've heard the name 'SOCO' but honestly have no idea what it stands for... so... what does 'SOCO' stand for?"
"We exist to point SOULS to Christ through life-giving COMMUNITY"
The world is at the fingertips of our young people and instead of saying "the kids and youth will lead this church one day" we believe that the younger generations need to be discipled and developed right now to make an impact in the world today.
We Believe that the NEXT Generation is the NOW Generation
You may be asking yourself, "What's a portable church?" We're glad you asked. We have no permanent home, instead, we load our gear (stage, lights, cameras, LED wall, kids classrooms, coffee, merch, etc.) into a rented facility each Sunday to create next-level environment for people to experience the hope of Jesus. But... after almost 5 years of portable church life...
We are building our permanent home and we can't wait to see how many lives are changed in it!
We're a portable church...
but not FOR LONG!
The best part about building a new home at this stage in the life of our church is that we all have an opportunity to be a part of it. We are not affiliated with any specific denomination so the funding and building process are all on us.
