our values

Passionate Believers

We are over-the-top about what Jesus has done for us and express it individually and corporately.

Always Multiplying

We are devoted to inviting others, making disciples, and reproducing churches.

Authentic Community

We pursue genuine relationships that are life-giving, joy- filled, and challenge us to be better.

Ready Investors

We start where we are and actively listen to the voice of God for where, what, and who to invest in next.

Development Driven

We are self feeders and growing leaders, who are intentional about our time and purpose.

Responsible Owners

We love our city and church, therefore we accept the responsibility to serve, care for, and leave it better than we found it!

Practicing Unity

We bridge racial, economic, and social divides by reaching out, embracing conflict, and listening before disagreeing.

Pursuing Excellence

We give our best because God gave us His. It is our privilege to give our greatest effort, attitude, and focus.

Experience Makers

We embrace every moment as an opportunity to help our world experience God through what we create and how we behave.

Risk Takers

We are strategic risk-takers who choose faith over comfort to experience unbelievable outcomes.

Our Pastors


About Us

Joey and Lauren Furjanic are the Founding and Lead Pastors of The Block Church. Having started TBC in 2014 with just a handful of faithful people and a blazing heart to reach Philly for Jesus, the Furjanic's are on mission together as a family. Joey and Lauren are parents to Maverick the boy, Jovie the girl, and Phil the dog.


Give Now

Here at The Block, we say you’re not giving to our church as much as you are giving through our church. This is because you are giving to God as you trust your local church. When we are obedient to this powerful principle found in scripture, lives are transformed by the resources we are able to provide. You are helping our church thrive, you are planting churches all over the world, you are financing missionaries around the globe, and assisting those in need right here in our city. What a joy it is to get to be a giver.

What about my kids?

The Block KidsThe Block Youth

Every child, ages 0-11, can experience an age-appropriate service, specially created just for them! We are excited that all of our age-specific classrooms will be learning the same stories this year. This creates an opportunity for you and your family to continue learning at home and growing deeper together.
