Project Awaken Website Launch

About The Website

Project Awaken is an online church which connects their community through blogs, forums and videos.  The spiritual themes and conversations discussed online turn into action projects in Minneapolis. The church website was designed to communicate a clean and open message.

Bio - I am on a quest for truth.  If  nothing in my life is accomplished outside of truth seeking, I will deem my life successful.  Jesus Christ is my ultimate truth and Project Awaken is my ultimate expression of the truth that I am finding.  Outside of work, I love the urban lifestyle I lead in Minneapolis.  Frequently partaking in activities at the Source Boiler Room in Minneapolis, my life revolves around the community.


Paul Kelly 
Director of Community

Bio - I am a small town soul in love with city life. Some people say I am laid back. My wife says those people don’t really know me.  My wife and I have a passion to create a home for people to come in and feel the hospitality and Love of Christ. I love biking. I love coffee. I love my rocking chair in my porch. This is a taste of who I am. 


About Project Awaken

Project Awaken began growing in the heart of its founders early in 2008. Conversations between Paul and Darrell became the origins of the original Project Awaken blog, which led a quiet life until October 2009, when both Paul and Darrell began feeling God calling them to take their message to a wider audience.

They seek the awakening of their generation. They seek to wake them to Jesus Christ and the power of his resurrection. They find inspiration in the story of Samuel - a young man who did not know the Lord because the word of the Lord had not been revealed to him. When he hears the voice, though, he wakes up and changes a nation forever.
