our story

The Ridge Community Church was started by Lead Pastor Mark Weigt in October 2006. We are a non-denominational Christian church for people who don't like church with locations in Greenfield and Oak Creek, Wisconsin, as well as online at live.theridgecc.com. Our atmosphere is welcoming, our dress is casual and we want you to feel comfortable when you're with us.

Here's how and why we got our start...

Mark was born and raised in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He earned a business degree from the University of Miami, and a Masters of Divinity at Asbury Theological Seminary in Kentucky.

Mark worked at churches in Florida, Kentucky and California, but he and his wife Donna felt a need to come home and start The Ridge for a very specific reason, “It bothered us that people didn’t go to church. And it’s not their fault. It’s our fault. Churches weren’t there for them. We wanted to create a church for non-church people.”

That idea soon became the mission of The Ridge: To help people find and follow Jesus.

During your initial moments with us, Mark says he hopes you’ll find something different, “My hope is that you experience acceptance, love, and authenticity. I hope you experience something that’s engaging, fun and inspiring so that you want to come back and bring a friend.”

What should you expect while you’re here? We’ve been known to use loud and engaging music with lots of lights. Our messages are always relevant and applicable to your day-to-day life. We aren’t afraid to use humor or our own personal failings to make a point. We hope you’ll find us to be a safe place, and a place where you would want to come back and bring a friend.
