Steamtown Church opens in Scranton
Residents of downtown Scranton have a new place of worship, one that emphasizes clear biblical teaching and cultural relevancy.
Steamtown Church opened in March with the assistance of Project Jerusalem, the church planting internship program at Baptist Bible Seminary. It is the sixth church the ministry has helped organize.
Project Jerusalem's innovative strategy partners BBS Master of Divinity students with independent churches, state associations and mission agencies to intentionally train church planters for ministry.
BBS student Dennis D'Augostine heads the team of five leaders. The church sprang from the team's work together in the Coal Mine Youth Ministry, a youth group for students in Scranton where each week teens hear a gospel message after basketball games.
Pastor D'Augostine's vision for Steamtown Church involves making it a unique worship experience. "When I was a kid, church was the same thing every Sunday,"he said. "I want Steamtown Church to be different and exciting every Sunday."
Steamtown Church meets every Sunday at Scranton's Red Carpet Inn at 10:30 a.m. For directions, click here.
