St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Iowa City chooses like-minded neighbors to help live out the gospel


The Matthew 25 congregation shows what it means to be Christ’s eyes, hands and feet

January 29, 2024

The Matthew 25 ethos was instrumental to St. Andrew Presbyterian Church‘s plans for its new facility on the outskirts of Iowa City, Iowa.

From the spacious, modern building to the land surrounding it, St. Andrew aims to serve its community providing space for meeting and gathering resources and identifying like-minded neighbors to sell its surrounding property to.

“This is not building membership,” the Rev. W. Robert Martin III, St. Andrew’s lead pastor and head of staff says. “This is simply showing them by example what it means to be the eyes, hands and feet of Christ.”
