After over 10 years of being in ministry in Jacksonville, Florida, Clifton and Kati Stanton knew God was preparing them for a new season. In 2017 they entered a time of fasting and earnestly seeking after God to find His new calling for their family. After a few months, they were overwhelmed by the clarity the Lord had provided in calling them to uproot their lives in Florida and move to Encinitas, California to plant a church and spread Love and belonging. From the moment they received that call until the summer of 2019, when they made the cross-country move, they spent time planning and preparing with the leadership of the Church of Eleven22 in Jacksonville, and the support of family and friends, for this new movement that is called Redline Church.
The name Redline came to Kati in a time of prayer. She was praying through what God wanted this movement to be called knowing it would be wholly focused on Jesus. The word Redline represents a focus on the scarlet thread of Jesus throughout the scriptures. Their hope is that Redline Church will be a place where you can belong before you believe. That we as a movement would reframe who Jesus is to people who feel far from Him and for those that don’t yet have a relationship with Him, that we would display the Hope and Love that only Jesus can provide. The Stantons believe that in addition to other faithful churches, Redline Church will help spread Hope and show Love to the people of Encinitas.
The Stanton family now lives in Encinitas and are involved in this incredible community, growing roots, and loving on the people around them.
Redline Church exists to glorify God by
spreading hope, showing love, and
Heart, Head, Hands
These values are what it looks like for Redline Church and those who call this Church home to Follow Jesus.
