Thank you for visiting our website!


 Jubilee's VISION:  Jubilee will be the church known for its Love:  contagious hospitality, extravagant generosity, and a gracious commitment to justice.  Jubilee will witness for Christ in the North End, in the city of Waterloo, in the Cedar Valley, and beyond (based on Acts 1:8)




Here you will find information concerning our church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. Our church is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and at liberty to call on us for anything you need. Feel free to browse through the various areas of our website and learn about our fellowship.

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest.

When you visit our church, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that gladly welcomes you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God
  • Loving leadership that creates "safe space" where you can be yourself
  • A craving for genuine freedom and compassion for our family members

I don't believe you came to this website by accident.  You are continuing a spiritual journey that could impact hundreds, possibly thousands of lives, whether you plan to or not.  So let's start that journey afresh right here! In the books of Psalm and Isaiah, we find passages of revival (Psalm 139: 23-24; Isaiah 58:6-10).  We pray that revival start in your heart and mind today--and remember, the Bible says that "wisdom is the principal thing, therefore, get wisdom" (Proverbs 4:7).

I am so glad the Lord sent you our way!  May his peace and grace be with you today.


Yours in God's Love,
Pastor Funchess
