Why connect with us?

Real and Ready to Connect

Our Beliefs

We exist to help people know and become like Jesus.
We do this by creating biblical disciples in relational environments.

Our Values

Relationship with God and with others is key to walking the path with Jesus.

Home Groups are the primary way we connect with others and build spiritually-based relationships. 

What We Do

Life happens every day of the week. Our Sunday morning gathering is just a part of who we are and what we do as a church family.

Providing ways to connect with other people and helping each other live as Christians is what we strive for.

One of the best ways to get connected and grow in relation is through our small groups.
We are dedicated to find the right one for you, but ultimately it is up to you!

These groups will begin the week of February 21st and will run for 5 to 8 weeks depending on your group choice. 

Let's Get Equipped!

Equip is a 1-½ day (10 hour) hands-on training where leaders and volunteers learn to make disciples of Jesus in real, authentic relationships.
The network of Real Life Churches has trained and coached over 100,000 pastors and leaders in this style of authentic, relational discipleship, most of whom traveled great distances to attend the training at their expense.
We’re excited to offer this training to you, our RLC leaders and volunteers, for free. This is our investment in you and the future of your family and ours.

Our Story

Blessings, Bumps, and Connections

In 2007, God launched a work on the Palouse that has truly been a miracle to witness. Aaron Couch, Charlie Couch, and Michael Reyes, along with their families, moved from Post Falls, Idaho, to the Moscow/Pullman area to start a church because of God’s leading, and no one had any idea what was in store.


On October 7, 2007, we met for the first time at Palouse Hills Christian School in Moscow, ID. We quickly outgrew that location and moved to the SEL Event Center in Pullman by Easter of 2008, where we have had a campus ever since. In 2014, we opened permanent locations in Moscow and Grangeville, in addition to our existing Pullman Campus. In 2016, our Grangeville Campus became an independent church. 


In 2019 we began the process to launch the Pullman Campus off as an independent local church.  This process came to completion in 2020. On May 1, 2020 Real Life Church in Pullman became an independent church, while still keeping ties with the church in Moscow.


Operating as two separate sister churches on the Palouse we are able to meet the unique needs of our different communities. God has been gracious to us and we feel very blessed to see all of the people God brings each week to our churches on the Palouse. With all of the blessings and bumps along the way, we have learned to trust God and know He wants His church to succeed even more than we do. We try each day to stay in step with Him as we are “reaching the world for Jesus, one person at a time.”
