Richard Jacobson is a former full time staff pastor who stepped down once he became conflicted over the discrepancies between the churches we read about in the Bible and the way we do church today. After ten years of seeking and studying for himself, it seemed like it was time to start sharing some of these ideas with others. His heart’s deepest desire is to connect with other believers who want to experience the type of true spiritual community described in the New Testament, who aren’t satisfied with going to church but would rather learn how to become a church instead.
