A Changing Church for Changing Times
We describe our congregation as a changing church for changing times. We celebrate our multicultural, multi-generational Church family.
Our church family includes people from Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Kenya, Jamaica, Trinidad, St. Vincent Island, Romania, Pakistan, and Hungary,
as well as some who grew up in the Crescentville neighborhood and others who are new to the area.
Please know you are welcome to be a part of the change! We invite you to join with us as we seek God’s leading us to be a welcoming place in our community.

Meet our future Pastor, Brendan Van Gorder

unity. He was born in Ireland, grew up near Harrisburg PA, and

Masters of Divinity.
Pastor Brendan has done ministry through chaplaincy at

He has also served as a pastoral minister at St. Paul's Baptist Church in North Philadelphia, and has gotten a ministry grant and helped run a youth program at Calvary United Methodist Church in Flint, Michigan, where his grandparents live. He enjoys building relationships with people and connecting communities. He plays guitar, saxophone, and loves to dance. He is married to Gina, a Philadelphia high school English teacher, and they have a beautiful daughter named Zoramya. He believes Luke 17:21 when it says that the kingdom of God is within us all.
