Our Approach

Our Story

God, the very creative power at the center of the universe, is
loving and caring like a truly devoted parent. This love is not one
aspect of God….but the very organizing reality at the heart of
things. God is love.

Morton T. Kelsey


The Orbital Model

The Church is in the midst of transition. We find ourselves at the cusp of new models as we move into 2022 and beyond. How do we adapt from an outdated hierarchical structure to one of “Orbital Relationship” as we move into this new time in church history? This is the beginning of Common Ground’s spiritual shift.

You are not here to be average. You are here to change the world. You are here to take part in the miraculous.  You were uniquely created for this purpose.  You are here to leave a legacy.  You are here to release that which has not previously been seen. It is time for us to take the desires of our heart by force. There are "6 degrees of separation", the power of strong and weak bonds and the value of orbital networking relating to your great purpose. John Paul Jackson

We are becoming a catalyst in Heaven's revolution as we break ground into new territory…as we partner with heaven to advance the Kingdom and awaken the world! “And the Lord kept adding to their number daily those who were coming to life…”

She said, “Yes!” and never turned back! In 1999, she was led to North Carolina, where she met her husband, Logan, in 2000, while attending MorningStar School of Ministry. They moved to CT in 2001 for more training with YWAM, and then to Ireland to work on the mission field, sent out by Dr. Brian Simmons. They returned to the US in 2008 to adopt their daughter in VA. After 3 years in VA, Sarah and Logan moved to TX. They bought a farm and raised livestock. Sarah transcribed video and audio recordings for John Paul Jackson, while Logan worked for Streams Ministries full time. After years of prayer, Sarah gave birth to a son in 2015. In 2016, the family moved to Mexico for a year, then moved to Ohio. Now they live in Blue Rock, OH, near Zanesville. Sarah hopes to start a church here in the coming years.
