Church or Org Description

Community Church was founded in 2003 by Dave and Bekah Crosby. In 2009, after six years of being portable, they purchased 70 acres of land and built their first permanent location. They are in Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania, a diverse bedroom community of New York City in the Pocono Mountains. From the beginning, Community Church has been decidedly multiethnic and multigenerational. They believe the church and its leadership should reflect the beautiful patchwork of colors and cultures surrounding them. The church is known for its love for God and its love for the people of its community. Community Church is a church of 1,500 (including adults, kids, and volunteers). They have one location and plan to launch their second site in 2022. They are affiliated with the Assemblies of God (USA).
