Mosaic Church



Mosaic began in May 2021 as a collaboration between two churches in Manhattan, KS: Tallgrass Community Church and The Well.

Leading two smaller churches through the pandemic season had been exhausting and difficult for both leadership teams. So when Ben Deaver and Josh Siders, lead pastors of both churches, grabbed their semi-regular coffee together in late spring 2021, the question, “Could we be better together?”, quickly became an idea: “Let’s meet together for a couple Sunday mornings in May and see what God might do.”

Not only did we get a clear sense that God might be in this collaboration, but we continued to meet together through the summer. By fall 2021 we were ready to affirm that we definitely were better together and should get married/merged. We called ourselves “Tallgrass at The Well”–a temporary mash-up name that conveyed the unique reality and story of our church.

On January 1, 2022, we officially approved our first joint budget and merged our financial systems and began the internal work of revisioning. Then on December 4, 2022, we officially unveiled the culmination of our work with our new name: Mosaic Church.

From the beginning our church has been a unique picture of bringing different pieces together to create a more beautiful and compelling whole. We’re eager to lean into this next season together as Mosaic Church–and we believe there’s a place for you.
