about

We think life is stressful enough,
so church shouldn’t be.

Story Church is a safe place to discover Jesus for who He really is, and to join others on the journey of following Jesus. 

Story Church gathers on Sunday mornings at the Malco Town Cinema Grill in Rogers, and is also committed to serving our community in various ways around Bentonville and NWA.


Be sure to check out our events on this site as well as our social media to keep up with what's going on. We can't wait to hear your story!

Aaron & Renee are both honored and humbled to begin Story Church in The Greater Bentonville area. They have been involved in ministry for 20 years.  After spending the past 12 years planting a church outside of Pittsburgh, PA, God released them to come back to Arkansas.  The Johnson’s began building their church planting team in early 2019 and then moved to Bentonville in July of 2019. Aaron & Renee love traveling, exploring new coffee shops and restaurants in NWA. On Saturdays, you can find them “junking” at local antiques stores looking for the next find.

Growing up in church, ministry stole Mia’s heart at a relatively young age. Always hungry to be involved in the youth group band or worship teams, Mia knew worship leading would be a staple to her life & relationship with the Lord. She attended ministry schools in Chicago, IL, as well as Northern California for the last four years & was eagar to finally leap into a church leadership role. The Lord crossed her path with Aaron and Russ through a mutual friend in April 2020. And the rest is history! Mia is a singer / songwriter, as well as an owner of a thrift company, which consume most of the hours in her days. Truly a creative at her core.

kali bowers

Kali has always had a heart for ministry and children. During her college years she was a student athlete and college ministry intern, spending her time planning events and ministering to students, and coaching softball players. Once she moved back to her hometown of Bentonville, AR she continued to coach and mentor young ladies through softball while her and her husband Daniel searched for a home church. When God crossed their paths with Russ and Aaron from a mutual church friend, Daniel and Kali began serving on the launch team at Story Church. After a few meetings it was clear that God had plans for both of them at Story Church and they made it their church home. Kali is excited to serve as the Story Kids Coordinator. In her free time you’ll find Kali and Daniel at the softball field coaching kids or hanging out with their two adorable dogs.
