How did we get the name Belay?

Our Name

"Belay" is a term borrowed from a popular Boulder sport — rock climbing— and it can have a couple meanings.

As a Noun

As a noun, a belay can refer to a place where you anchor yourself to a rock.

As a Verb

As a verb, it means to apply tension to a rope to keep a climber from falling, and to lessen that tension as the climber ascends—making possible a successful climb.

Our Prayer

Our prayer is that Belay will be a place that we can belong to a loving church family, believe in Jesus, become all God untended, and belay others toward belonging, believing, and becoming.
