Ecclesia Welcomes Next Gen & Engage Community Church to the Network!!

April 8, 2014

At the 2014 National Gathering, Ecclesia was excited to welcome two new congregations to our family – Next Gen Church of West Windsor, NJ and Engage Community Church of Carlisle, PA.

Next Gen Church is a multi-cultural fellowship pastored by Mia Chang, Lola Akiwowo, and Jim Butler.  They are the model of a congregation that allows the gospel to break down the walls from where we have come and fuse the people of God into the new community for which we are headed.  They are actively engaged in ministry to their community and support everything they do through the power of prayer and the activity of the Spirit.  You can find out more information about Next Gen Church at or on the Ecclesia website here.

Engage Community is a 5-year old congregation reaching people beyond the reach of the church outside Harrisburg, PA.  Jon Hand and his wife Aimee planted engage for those who are not into church or are unfamiliar.  They want people to feel safe to be themselves, knowing that God loves us not as we should be but as we are.  They are committed to helping people explore the message of Jesus without fear of being judged or rejected.  Engage believes that as we come to know Jesus we are inspired by the life of God in us.  God lives, breathes, and pulsates through our lives so that we become conduits of God’s love in the places we live, work, and play.  To connect with Engage you can go to or find them on the Ecclesia website here.
