vision and values
Over 60 years ago, DCOG started as a small church and quickly grew largely due to the intentional impact left within the local community. We now own over 40 acres of land which currently hosts Lighthouse Christian School, Dagsboro Boys and Girls Club, and other community-focused clubs and organizations, carrying on our tradition as a community-minded ministry. John 13:35 began the church's love for community as the church holds fast to its truth that people can know Jesus by how well we love them.
Our journey continues as Pastor Morris brings a fresh vision of discipleship within our community to carry on the legacy of loving others to the feet of Jesus, growing in knowledge and wisdom along the way.
