Our Story

We are a community of people who have been transformed by the Gospel of Jesus and have devoted our lives to following Him. It is our aim to communicate the unchanging truth of the person and work of Jesus in a way that everyone in our city can understand.

The dream of Reality San Francisco began in 2007 when Dave Lomas and his wife Ashley moved from Bakersfield to Carpinteria to begin the process of planting in the Reality Family of Churches. Two years later, they moved to SF with a core team of 13 people.

Our initial prayer meetings in Hayes Valley were full of dependence upon God and anticipation of what He might want to do. Public gatherings began at the Swedish American Hall in the Castro on January 10, 2010. Due to rapid (and unexpected) growth, we eventually hosted four services there before moving to Everett Middle School in 2014. Currently, over 90 Community Groups meet during the week throughout the Bay Area. God has been so kind to our church community, and we love being a part of what He’s doing here in San Francisco.

Our Mission & Vision

The mission of our church seeks to answer the question, “Why do we exist?” And it’s the same as what the Church’s mission has been for over 2,000 years:

“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20

Our Mission Statement

To make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey everything Jesus has commanded.

Our vision statement seeks to answer the question, “What will the future look like if we fulfill our mission?” It will look like, “A community following Jesus, seeking renewal in our city” — which, we believe, is actually possible. More on what it means to follow Jesus here. And more on how we experience transformation here.

Our Vision Statement

A community following Jesus,
seeking renewal in our city.
