Introducing our New Logo
As we complete five years of following Jesus here in the Bay Area, we felt led to create a new logo which captures the nature of the work God has asked us to join Him in. The first five years were an incredible journey, full of unexpected turns, times of waiting, seasons of doubt, and periods of grief. Yet God has taught us how to hear His voice, rest in His love, and obey His instructions. This has grown our faith in Him, deepened our love for each other, and clarified the calling Jesus has made on our lives.
The logo reflects our calling and communicates our vision. In it you see circles of various sizes and colors, too many to easily count, gathered in a larger relationship which is both embracing and releasing. The circles represent various local church gatherings -- spiritual families following Jesus as Lord, loving God and each other, multiplying new disciples and new churches.
The circles show diversity both in the size of each church and the background of the family members. Together, they form a larger whole, in the same way an original family grows to be an extended family and eventually a tribe who share a common DNA with a diverse expression.
The circles are shaped to form a protective bay, but as with all bays, it is not closed off. Rather, the bay is a safe place to rest, grow, and be strengthened before moving out on the next mission.
That is the vision God has given us for Sanctuary Bay -- a loving diverse family who share a common DNA from our Father, a common Lord in Jesus, and a common mission from the Spirit.
