Letter From

Pastor Joe & Deacon Jess

Dear TNC Family,

In June 2011, Pastor Joe and Deacon Jess Liles were called from Wartburg Theological Seminary to plant a church in Northwest Arkansas. Through deep prayer, many one-on-one conversations, city meetings and population-needs analysis, The Neighborhood Church (TNC) was launched Easter Sunday 2012 as a portable church in the cafeteria of Central Park Elementary School. 


Since that first worship, TNC has followed a unique, God directed vision to Change Church & Create Relationship. This vision sparked TNC's growth, including expansion to a Bentonville store front, and finding our current home on I Street. As we continue to grow, we recognize and embrace that each new person that calls TNC their home church, makes us new also. We love that TNC is always transforming. 


In the last 10 years, Bentonville has also witnessed a lot of change. The city has transformed into a bustling center of commerce, culture and community. Bentonville is creating a thriving community by providing spaces for the arts, food and entertainment, and outdoor activity. This growth in Bentonville provides an incredible opportunity for a pivotal intersection where faith and the church meet family in community. TNC can embrace this opportunity faithfully by finding innovative ways to teach Christian values, develop and curate content, create curriculum and construct space that will welcome and accommodate more families, individuals and our community at large. Picture This: 75 - 100 families impacted daily by God’s love and grace through The Neighborhood Church. 


Please prayerfully join us as we embark on our next ten years with goals that continue to embrace growth, change and relationship. We are grateful and excited to continue this Christ-led journey with you!

A Daily journey with God

Do you ever worry about getting dirty. I mean, let’s be honest. We all do. We all worry about getting stains on our pants, or spilling coffee on our shirt, or getting our hands dirty. Think about that though, was this true when we were kids though?

The world has need. It is not a need for comfort, it is a need for shelter from the storm. It is a need for sustainable access to food. It is a need for clothing. It is a need for care. The world has need.

People ask often, how do I know where I should serve? Or the question comes out in a little bit of a different way “I don’t know where I would be able to use my gifts to serve.” More often than not, this moment is the S.T.O.P. moment. It is the moment where we wait, faithfully, for someone else, our church, or a clear opportunity to be presented to us before we serve. 



Kiddos, we've made podcast episodes for you to listen to while your adults participate in our 21 day Spiritual Journey.


A podcast perfect for drive-time will come out for three Mondays in a row, and a podcast perfect for bedtime will come out three Thursdays in a row. Listen to them below, or subscribe on your favorite podcast app by searching for The Neighborhood Church!

The next 10 years....

28 Month Campaign

May 2022 through August of 2024

  1. Preschool and Kids Ministry Building
  2. Youth and Community Building
  3. 120 Additional Parking Sports and 2 full size Basketball courts
  4. 150 seat Amphitheater
  5. New TNC Facelift inspired by the Bentonville Parks and Trails

The preschool is designed to be self-sustainable. The 99 children served will support the mortgage, staffing, and operational costs of the building. We have also designed the youth building and courtyard to be multi-purpose and addtional income streams! We believe that we can host events and groups from around Bentonville that will help to support and sustain the ministry of The Neighborhood Church.


The total cost of the project will be close to 3.5 million.

Please consider a gift to the Break Ground Goal



The Break Ground Goal is the amount The Neighborhood Church needs to raise in order to build both buildings, the parking lot, courtyard and the new front of the building. This is a sacrificial gift from the heart of your relationship with God, it will take our leaders knowing that God is moving in this church to reach this goal. 

This will take BOLD FAITH. 



The Generosity Goal of the congregation is the amount that the Financial Analysists with Injoy Stewardship say that we can faithfully raise through our current giving (which includes 2 years of Covid). This is a celebration if we reach this goal, but it will not allow us to build all of the buildings, this will allow us to construct the Preschool Building and Parking Lots.
