In one week in the late ’90s, the church got kicked out of their building and got robbed of their only computer. They had no way to get a hold of anyone to tell people they’d moved, and no money or even equipment to print anything to announce it. That’s when a church member told Pastor Mark about this thing called the internet.

The documentary gives a glimpse at the ups and downs of the early years of Mars Hill Church. It’s a story that includes didgeridoos during offering, tithing with one-dollar bills, and one really bizarre avant-garde Japanese concert—but more than any of that, it’s a story of how God was incredibly faithful to a group of people who had no idea what they were doing, except that they were committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to building and serving his church.
