J.C. Worley is 35 years old and is the founding pastor of Go Church in Germantown, Maryland. I met several years ago and I immediately sensed his passion for the Lord's work. I have been watching Go Church from a distance and I am excited to here of their progress. They have seen over 300 salvations and have baptized over 100 in water. They currently average around 300 people.
Prior to planting Go Church, J.C. served in North Georgia at South Metro Church with Pastor Allan Mathura. He have served on two youth boards, North Georgia and Delmarva-DC and was the President of NYLA for two years.
I encourage you to consider J.C. Worley for the Council of 18. He understands the denomination and would bring a new passion to our movement.
Here's his story from the church's website:
On July 12th, 2012 God spoke to the heart of JC Worley (A Youth Pastor in Atlanta at the time) and a clear directive was revealed over his ministry that day. God placed a burden on his life to lead a movement of radical believers, so desperate to fulfill the mandate on their lives, which is the responsibility to carry out The Great Commission. God said, this movement would be called: GO Church! After almost 15 months of praying, fasting and conversing, God undoubtedly spoke to the Worley family and Pastor JC, and Kimberly, along with their son Laiklan, moved to Maryland in September of 2013.
On April 6th, 2014 we officially launched the ministry of GO Church! Since then our church has experienced exponential numerical growth. The growth has increased by over 200%, making GO Church the fastest growing Church of God in Montgomery County and one of the fastest growing Christian churches in Germantown.
From the moment they began their leadership, they had one simple goal, “To love anyone from anywhere into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.” They also dreamed of pastoring a congregation that mirrored three different characteristics:
1) Spirit-Filled 2) Progressive and 3) Multi-Racial. Today, we are seeing these three characteristics come to fulfillment in the life of our congregation. Through their genuine love for people, Pastor JC’s relevant preaching and forward thinking leadership, and above all, their heart for The Lord, we believe that this church will continue to reach the lost, the unloved, unwanted, broken, desperate and abandoned individuals that are in our mission field. We are beyond excited about what God has done, what He is doing and what He will do through the life of this local body of believers.
We invite you to join us each Sunday at 9am and 10:30am at the Germantown Regal Cinema Movie Theater for our weekly service. If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com or give us a call at (301) 850-0240.
Matthew 28:18-20, “18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
GO Church exists to love anyone, from anywhere, into a personal relationship Jesus Christ.
