--- Our Pastor


“Our heart & soul is to connect people with the fresh hope of the Gospel.”

Pastor Brian is the founder and lead pastor of Chapel of Change Christian Fellowship. He loves to help people experience God’s restorative power. His calling comes from his own brokenness. He was sucked into the gang violence of Greater Los Angeles in the early 1990s. At 16 he was arrested and in the Compton Courthouse sentenced to life in prison.  After 16 years in prison, God lifted him from the pit of despair to be a voice of fresh hope to this generation.
Today Pastor Brian speaks at gatherings across the nation.  Recently he was chosen to be a key-note speaker at the Free Methodist General Conference in 2019.  In 2016, Chapel of Change was recognized as one of the top 5 fastest churches in the nation within the Free Methodist Church, USA.

Why I Love My Denomination…

Ok, more like "realy, realy like."

Last week the The Free Methodist Church (FMC) voted in favor of moving Chapel of Change from Church Planting Project status to Church status.  I know the first thing you thought was, "What is Free Methodist?"  Don't worry. I thought the same thing too a couple years ago.

You can learn more about FMC in this link- https://fmcsc.org/

In short, the FMC is a 150 year Christian movement that has been dedicated to preaching the Gospel and fighting for the disenfranchised.  I like that.  Legacy.

Here's my top reasons why I really, really like The Free Methodist Church.

1. We are Kingdom-minded.
     This means we put the big "C" over the little "C."  We value partnerships and relationships with other ministries, pastors and movements.  Picture John Wesley and John Calvin sipping Starbucks together.   On the streets, they would say we don't "set trip."  We understand that one church cannot do it all.

2. We value education AND the calling of God.
     A lot of denominations value education more than the calling of God.  If you're going to be a pastor, you need to have a master's degree or better.  But FMC doesn't sacrifice pastors on the altar of education.  

3. We value the multi-ethnic church movement.
     Now as a whole, we still have steps to take on this issue, but we are taking them and not just talking about them.  This year we were a major sponsor of the Mosiax National Multi-ethnic Church Conference, which is the face of the multi-ethnic movement.  And we have two of the most multi-ethnic churches in Long Beach (One of them Chapel of Change, yeah God!).

4. We prioritize church planting.
     This is huge for me for obivious reasons (I'm a church planter..lol..).  People look at the fruitfulness of CoC and wonder how?  Submitting to godly leadership under the FMC was the best church planting decision our leaders made.  It put us around fruitful leaders.  It help to give us accountability and wisdom.  And they financially invested in us in a huge way.

5. They are cool people.
     Yes, that's true.  

Denominations as a whole have a bad rep in a lot of young peoples' minds,  mostly for reasons that happened a 100 years ago.  

But Chapel of Change is proud to stand on the shoulders of a 150 year legacy of believers who have been preaching the Gospel and fighting for the poor.  That excites me!  It's good to belong.

One Church – Two Locations

The Lord has done it again!

I'm excited to announce that God is expanding CoC into Long Beach.
We now are one church with two locations.

Our new RIVER/LONG BEACH campus is on the corner of Atlantic Ave./Del Amo Blvd and is only ten minutes away from our PARAMOUNT CAMPUS.

Wow, the Lord is giving us the opportunity to give fresh hope to more families and a larger part of the city.  This is huge.  And just think.  We are only one year old as a church.

The river is rising!

30 Day Church Challenge

In our first year of life, CoC did a lot of gathering.  But now it's time to focus on discipling.  Therefore we kicked off 2014 strong with a 30 Day Church Challenge aimed to teach the church the five main purposes of the church and get believers engaged in small groups.  This is in line with this year's theme of "DiscipleSHIFT."

We are serious about teaching people how to be fully, devoted disciples of Christ.

I'm pleased to announce that our 30 Day Church Challenge was a huge success.  Here are some of the highlights:

1. 100+ people engaged in small groups.
2. Sunday worship attendance in record highs.
3. Gave 67 service hours to help beautify the city.
4. Collected $500.00 to help needy families in our church.
5. The church is growing smaller (through authentic community) as it's growing larger.
6. New leaders are emerging.

Celebrate!  Chapel of Change is on the move.

P.s. On Sunday, February 16, I will be giving a historical, GINORMOUS announcement about the future of CoC.
