The seeds of our ministry and vision are found in Ephesians 3:14-20, which talks about “being rooted and established in love” and that God offers us all “immeasurably more.”

The image of a tree has always been meaningful to us, because it reminds us that God invites our identity to be rooted in his love—and that growth happens from there. Today’s culture can distort this promise, making us think that we need to earn love or hide mistakes. At We Want More, everything we do is designed to help your identity be deeply rooted in what is already true: that you are fully loved and accepted by God. From this foundation, you can grow in the “immeasurably more” he promises you.

Our Name:
“We Want More”

Our name is inspired by Ephesians 3:20, which promises that God “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.” Our ministry is a community of people who hunger for that “more” in our lives, relationships, ministries, and families. The more God promises isn’t what we achieve, but what his power allows us to receive.

Our Home Base:
The More House

Our headquarters is a 120-year old historic home in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Thousands have come through our doors, whether to join us in The Worship Room, receive prayer, experience rest, be treated to a beautiful meal, or spend time in Scripture. In the More House, as well as any online event we lead from here, we strive to make you feel like royalty—because, as God’s sons and daughters, you are.

Our Values

Prayer

Prayer that leads to intimacy and trust; prayer that believes our Father hears and responds; and prayer that brings restoration, renewed hope, and healing.

The Word

Key to a loving relationship with God is time invested to know Him—particularly through reading His “living” Word. Knowing and experiencing His personhood, life, wisdom, and truth in Scriptures leads us to a life of deeper meaning, purpose, peace, and hope.

Presence

We seek to be in such intimate relationship with God that we rely on and respond to his presence more than anything else. We submit our strategic plans and programs to His leading, and resist reliance on our own understanding as the means of fruitfulness. Like Moses, we will not move forward without His leading (Exodus 33:15).

Identity

Knowing who we are, and whose we are in Christ, changes everything. His Spirit brings transformation—a new understanding to live a life of hope, meaning, and purpose. The King of the universe has invited us into a new identity with one another as his sons and daughters (Romans 8:14-15).

Unity

Unity is about love—love that calls for humility and honor within community. We identify with Jesus’ heart for unity in the church as he prayed in John 17:21, “I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one…” It means sacrifice, but we believe it is worth it —to be drawn together under one head, Jesus Christ.
