About This Organization

Pennington Park Church has undergone a remarkable transformation in just eight short years. Explosive growth has become the defining characteristic of this vibrant church. One striking aspect of this very young congregation is the prevalence of youth; on any given weekend, an impressive 30+ percent of attendees are 18 years old or younger.
Community expectations are high, and the church’s unwavering commitment to excellence has driven its growth.  The church is embarking on a capital campaign to expand its three-year-old facility to accommodate the rapidly growing congregation, now averaging 1,000 each Sunday. Behind this impressive growth lies a growing, dedicated, high-performing staff eager for further development. In the last six months, the team has doubled in size to 16 staff members.
