When Ben and Brooke Fischer moved to Nampa from Notre Dame, they soon joined with a small group in Eagle, Idaho for the planting of Holy Trinity Church in 2009. With an eye to ministry towards college students at NNU, Ben and Brooke conducted Bible studies and prayer groups for several years as an outreach of Holy Trinity. Following Ben’s ordination to the presbyterate in the Anglican Church of Rwanda, the Nampa Mission began meeting weekly on Sunday evenings in September 2011 to worship the Lord in the Anglican tradition. Holding fast to the ancient rhythms of worship, with an emphasis on teaching the Word and obeying the Holy Spirit, services also pulled in the best of today’s music and song.
For three years, the Nampa Mission met as a local extension of Holy Trinity’s mission to the Treasure Valley, meeting in a church, a house, a banquet hall, and the American Legion Hall. In 2014, the pastoral leadership of Holy Trinity recognized that the Nampa Mission was becoming a distinct church body. With blessing and support from Holy Trinity, the Nampa Mission became Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church on August 31, 2014.
