Amazing video interview with FourSquare Pastor Dennis Easter of Portland. He has taken a historic downtown church and helped move it in a missional direction. Lots of great examples of the ways his church is integrating with the community around them to live out their mission. He also shares some great advice for other churches and leaders wanting to move their churches this direction. “If you believe God has called you to come and change a historic church in a setting to something new, then be ready for the journey of your life, because the first change that’s going to happen is you. If you don’t go into that deep change personally, you’ll never lead your church into that deep change.”

This is a very helpful video. Thanks for sharing it. It encourages me to see a legacy church move this direction. Dennis, thank you for your leadership and insights.
