OUR PASTORS
JOEY AND LAUREN FURJANIC

Joey Furjanic is the Founding and Lead Pastor of The Block Church. He also serves as the President of The Block School of Leadership. Lauren is an integral part of the culture as well, providing additional leadership to both the staff and the church. Leading together from the start, the Furjanics launched The Block in September of 2014. They share an equal love and hate for Philly sports and are most happy when enjoying good music, great food, and their kids—Maverick the boy and Phil the dog.
