My name is Dan, have grown up in non-denomination churches all my life and have been in full time ministry for 20 years, mostly in student ministry. We (small group of people) are launching a new church in a suburb of Chicago, where we have live for 16 years. Our church will be non-traditional and relevant to an un-churched person but biblical sharing the truth of the Gospel. We will create a come as you are church environment that you don't need to worry about looking the part of a church goer. Our mission is to help people pursue a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We want that to be expressed in our logo!
Unchurched people, young, old, families and singles. All are welcome! They are hip and media savvy. The Churches around us are very traditional and many either don't attend or are frustrated with them. We need to show them we are different in every way.
Navy, Gray, a little red, a little white
I like the those color combos but will also like the logo color to be interchangeable giving us maximum options.
Clean, sharp, modern look
NO CROSS IN THE DESIGN
Pursuit Church (name needs to be in the logo) ...I love the idea of the top of an arrow top pointing in the direction up. That could be a very simple look too, don't want a detailed arrow head/top. It could also be in the direction of north/west, don't want it going straight north, then it would look like a roof top-don't want that.
Love the idea of placing all of this in a circle...or be creative and place the entire piece in some cool shape.
