Pastors Adam and Keira Smallcombe moved in response to the call of God to plant a church in Silicon Valley – and through their step of faith, VIVE Church was born, which currently has ten locations across the world. They encouraged an innovative and bold culture, which resulted impacting many peoples' perceptions of church. A Bay Area wide campaign, “Not Religious? Neither Are We." was launched to start the church. The campaign ended up having a global effect as many were challenged by the powerful message of a God who wants relationship and not just religious traditions.
