Our Vision

Platforms aren't created for our gain, but for God's glory.


In Nehemiah chapter 8, a platform is built for Ezra to read God's Word to the surrounding crowd. As the people began to understand the Word, their response was to worship God and to celebrate His goodness.

5 Ezra stood on the platform in full view of all the people. When they saw him open the book, they all rose to their feet.

6 Then Ezra praised the Lord, the great God, and all the people chanted, “Amen! Amen!” as they lifted their hands. Then they bowed down and worshiped the Lord with their faces to the ground.

At Platform85, we believe God gives us platforms not for our own gain, but to glorify Him. We all have unique gifts and talents, and we are committed to helping our community walk out God's perfect plan for their lives. You were given a unique identity, passion, and purpose.

The city of Mobile has a call to be an example of God's faithfulness and goodness. This is because of her people. We are committed to stewarding God's presence in our city to bring life to our community. We believe that Platform85 is called to bring six things to the people of our city, which are our core values--worship, identity, relationship, love, honor, and freedom.

We invite you to join us in this adventure. We have big plans for Platform85, but mostly we want to see God's heart for our city manifest. This requires more than just a Sunday morning every week. This is a lifestyle of intentional relationship with Father God and with one another.
