A church for philadelphia and beyond
We are over-the-top about what Jesus has done for us and express it individually and corporately.
We are devoted to inviting others, making disciples, and reproducing churches.
We pursue genuine relationships that are life-giving, joy- filled, and challenge us to be better.
We start where we are and actively listen to the voice of God for where, what, and who to invest in next.
We are self feeders and growing leaders, who are intentional about our time and purpose.
We love our city and church, therefore we accept the responsibility to serve, care for, and leave it better than we found it!
We bridge racial, economic, and social divides by reaching out, embracing conflict, and listening before disagreeing.
We give our best because God gave us His. It is our privilege to give our greatest effort, attitude, and focus.
We embrace every moment as an opportunity to help our world experience God through what we create and how we behave.
We are strategic risk-takers who choose faith over comfort to experience unbelievable outcomes.
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.
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.
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.
We want you to feel connected to the community, mission, and fun that makes The Block Church who we are! Joining a Block Group, a Block Team, a Serve Saturday or getting water baptized are ways to make TBC part of your community. We can’t wait to get to know you!
