Huge announcement last week at Freedom Life! No, my wife is not pregnant but we're giving birth to some dreams & visions in the life of our church!
Last week I announced our new staff transitions as we prepare to plant a church in the Downingtown area. The new church is called Bridge Community & will be led by our former Familly Life Pastor, Bob Hulett. 4 years ago God put a desire in my heart to plant a church in this community & that day has finally come. Very exciting stuff! For more information about the church plant & their 1st preview service, you can go to their website at www.bridgecommunity.tv!
The Leadership team & I have been praying for some time about what this transition would ultimately look like after the church plant. God has led us to restructure our staff & put some incredible people over key areas in the life of our church. I'm so excited for the kids of our church & community in these different environments to have some of the best godly leaders on the planet! Here's the breakdown:
