I’m the founding Senior Pastor of Christ’s Church of the Valley in the suburbs of Philadelphia. In 13 years the church has grown from a small group in my home to over 2,000 incredible people. Before that I served in churches of 25 to 600 in attendance. I love church planters and pastors of smaller churches, and totally understand the difficult challenges they face as they try to help people find their way back to God.
And in the midst of all of this, in the back of our minds, we are hoping that once the pandemic has subsided, volunteers will flock back. And the temptation is just to put everything on cruise control and ride this out until things return to normal.
