From a nail-biting start, the ministry [at The Block Church] has expanded to three locations attracting 800 congregants at six Sunday worship services and a new plant in Dallas. So far, 764 people have come to faith in Jesus and 204 have been baptized. The church runs creative outreaches, such as block parties with bounce houses and free food, as well as theatrical productions.
The Block Church reflects a diverse congregation of various socio-economic, ethnic, racial, and age categories.
“We met the nicest people who embraced us and took an interest in us,” says Theo Ingram, an African-American freelance actor who attends The Block Church with his wife, Nicola. “I was a nominal Christian before, but now Jesus is my everything.” Ingram serves as an usher and greeter.
“We want to see revival in our city one block at a time,” says Furjanic, who has served as a table coach for Church Multiplication Network church planter training events, helping new pastors prepare to start churches in their communities.
