Our Story

Why not us?

After attending a church leaders conference where the week’s theme was this basic question, Brian and Shannon Bradford felt God calling them to plant a new, life-giving church. God clearly spoke to their hearts and said, “Why not you?”

After much prayer and wise counsel, God opened the door for them to start this new church in the Rocket City. Following God’s leading, they packed up their life, their three kids, and their chocolate lab and arrived in town mid-summer 2019.

Simply put, the heart behind Rocket City Church is relationships.

Pastor Brian and Shannon value others, their stories, and envision a church where people gather from different backgrounds and feel seen, heard, and loved. RCC believes that Jesus brings new life, that He sees who we are, and loves us to the core of our being.

Rocket City Church in Madison is a place where we love, live, learn, lead, and launch for God.

Why? Well…because…why not us?
