Founder and Lead Pastor
Mick, is such a friendly and helpful host! It was a plus that his place is gorgeous and our people gave us great feedback. We'll definitely be back for another round of our Team Night training.
Wonderful hosts to work with! We loved the space and it was the perfect size and well equipped for our family gathering! Thank you so much for allowing your space to be rented! Laura
Can I leave six stars? Mick's space, equipment and knowledge are remarkable. He's eager to help, share his expertise, and- no joke- helped us dig through recycling to search for a piece of equipment that we thought had been thrown away. Will definitely work with him in the future.

Mick was an amazing and personable host. We truly enjoyed hosting our best friends graduation tea party in this space. Mick's space provided everything we needed and the space is as seen in the photos, with more than enough room to create and decorate the space you desire for your event. Look forward to sipping tea with Mick again soon.
We rented this space for a graduation dinner and had about 20 family/friends there, including a toddler who had a marvelous time running around and playing with his toys in the corner. Renting this space was a fabulous experience from beginning to end. Mick was responsive to my frequent questions pre-event, getting back to me within an hour at most. He was helpful getting us settled in to the space, but gave us our privacy as soon as we were set up. The space itself is beautiful - spacious, bright, aesthetically pleasing. We had everything we needed and had a wonderful time.

This is the perfect place for a team offsite. Mick was on top of everything. The place is huge, wifi was solid, the projector and screen to use worked great for my macbook air. We had a caterer come in to set up food and it was super easy for them to load and unload. Lots of great natural light. I have a team of 30 people and there was plenty of space for us to sit and conduct the activities. Thanks Mick
Would highly recommend this space to anyone looking for a photo shoot/video shoot event space. Mick was the most accommodating guy - it was such a pleasure working with him. The space has a lot of character and natural light.
