ARVADA, Colo. (BP) — Storyline Fellowship in Arvada, Colo., called JT English to be the church’s new lead pastor Sunday (April 5). Since October 2014, English has served on staff at The Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas, launching the Village Church Institute discipleship strategy there and serving on the church’s executive team. The Village Church Institute was founded in order to ground theological education and discipleship primarily in the local church. Over the past five years, several thousand people have participated.
Storyline, a five-year-old North American Mission Board church plant, had been searching for a new leader since last July, when founding pastor Ben Mandrell became president and CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources.
The search process took an unusual turn when Colorado churches were encouraged by city officials to begin meeting online only, due to the spreading coronavirus pandemic.
