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.
For me, fifth Sundays has always felt like a natural Sunday to do something different than normal. But our church has always struggled to figure out what exactly that different-than-normal thing should be.
