One of the most common questions we are asked is "why the name swerve"? Great question! Danny takes a moment to explain the meaning behind the name!
The name has much significance. It's not just an attempt to sound hip or cool. The definition of "swerve" is an abrupt change in direction. This is what we're praying to see in the lives of the people in Bushwick Brooklyn by the grace of God through Jesus.
Read Matthew 7:13-14 to read of the wide and narrow roads:
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Do you want to help Swerve Church fulfill the mission of leading people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus? Do you want to see an abrupt change in direction in peoples lives? We'd love for you to join the launch team and help us reach Brooklyn for jesus.
Swerve Church is a new Church Plant coming to the Bushwick / Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. Our mission is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus. We're committed to the capital "C" church because we know we can do infinitely more together than apart. We will do anything short of sin to reach people far from God because to reach people that no one is reaching, we need to do things that no one is doing. We are a part of NetworkChurches.tv. We hope to launch in April of 2014.
At The Movies is a summer series across all 16 campuses of LifeChurch.tv. While church attendance records plumit in many churches across America during the summer season, LifeChurch is seeing record attendance!
In case you don't know, At The Movies is a series where Pastor Craig takes some of Hollywood's greatest hits and brings out Biblical principals. For some, it's a controversial series. For others, it makes perfect sense. Everyone loves a good movie, but not everyone likes church. LifeChurch has found a great way to get church and non-church goers alike to attend during the hot summer months!
It's all a part of LifeChurch's mission of leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ and their willingness to do anything short of sin to reach people who are far from God.
At Swerve Church it is our heart as well to reach as many people as possible by any means necessary because to reach people no one is reaching, you have to do things no one is doing!
