Our Story

 

Alex and Jaclyn met at a back yard graduation party the summer of 2004 and quickly fell in love. Three years later they were married and moved to Kansas City, MO where they served at the International House of Prayer. After sensing God’s call to the Philadelphia region where they both were born and raised, Alex and Jaclyn moved back to the Philadelphia area in the beginning of 2010. Alex would spend that initial season finishing his education at the University of Valley Forge. Alex and Jaclyn served at Calvary Church in Wyncote, PA, in the areas of worship and media. Eventually, Alex became the Worship and Creative Arts Pastor at Calvary.

A seed was planted in 2010 at a church planting event at the University of Valley Forge. However, it wasn’t until June 2015, in a season of transition at Calvary Church, that Alex and Jaclyn felt it was time to move forward with that dream. In the following two years, they would continue to prepare themselves for this dream (church planter’s assessment, CMN training, Alex’s ordination and master’s degree, and a field study at the Block Church, a Philadelphia church plant). Their dream would face many challenges during this time. However, through a series of events in early 2017, God began to restore faith and reveal what their next steps would be. Alex and Jaclyn are partnering with Life Christian Fellowship (LCF) and Pastor Bob Novak, in the planting of a new church in Delaware County. They are also working with a church planting network called the V3 Movement.
