About Us:
In 2015, we started this small church plant as a way to reach the thousands of students and families living in this vibrant part of North Carolina. We currently consist of two married couples and two single young adults who attend universities or work in the area.

We are located in the Trinity Heights neighborhood of Durham. Our yard is perfect for barbecues with neighbors and playing corn hole on the weekends. The front porch makes a good place for singing together in the evening and we enjoy the local parks for walks, games, and making new friends. We have an open dining room and sitting area which is perfect for hosting group events.

Connecting with Neighbors:
Our neighbors have welcomed us and invited us to their homes and churches. We are quickly finding opportunities to join in with other churches and organizations, especially Duke Chapel and the nearby Reality Ministries. Every Saturday, as part of our Acts2 ministry, we host an open evening for young people including students of Duke University and Divinity School. We play outdoor and indoor games, enjoy a home-cooked meal and singing, and share talk and discussions.

Acts 2 at Duke:
Since the fall of 2017, we’ve operated as an official campus ministry at Duke University. We welcome anyone who is seeking to find genuine purpose for their life, and we find practical ways to love each other and our neighbors. Visit the Acts 2 at Duke website for more information.

Point of Interest:
Our neighborhood took its name from Trinity College, now the East Campus of Duke University.

Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

The Bruderhof has an open-door policy. No matter who you are, we are delighted to meet and spend time with you. All Bruderhof communities host both drop-in and overnight guests every week. Some visits are purely social; others are deep explorations of faith and possible membership. Some visits involve ice cream and horse-cart rides; others revolve around spiritual conversations and guidance. Whatever your visit will be, we look forward to getting to know you!

We like to offer our house as a space for university students in particular, as it gives them a chance to disengage from the pressures of academics. It provides a new social dynamic to their often stressful lives, and gives them a chance to build...

Encounters: Armidale, October 2017


It had not been a good morning and during my noon workout at the university gym a modified Gilbert & Sullivan line kept running through my head, keeping pace with the monotonous thud of dozens of feet pounding on dozens of treadmills. “A...

Praying for His Persecutors


This week, as our country celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy and simultaneously realized just how far we are from his vision of racial peace and justice, I was reminded of a film I watched last year. Accidental Courtesy tells the story...
