Charlie Dunn: through the lens of a church planting residency

The road to Boston was not easy. Their decision finally to come was. For Charlie Dunn, his wife Abby and daughter Brooklyn, they answered God’s call to church planting with a curious “yes” and an understanding that He would lead them to the right city.

So God led them in the winter of 2011 to four feet of snow and 9 degrees below zero. It was their first vision trip to Boston. Two trips later, and with the right connections, the Dunns are serving in a 12-month church planting residency with Pastor Bland Mason of City on a Hill Church in Brookline, MA.

Why Boston? Why now? What’s next. Listen in as Charlie shares a vision God has given him to plant a new church out of City on Hill in 2013.

Todd Burus: the church planter for Charlestown, Boston, MA – Todd Burus is coming to Charlestown! So how is it that more than a year before he will even pack his family and the truck in Louisville, KY, he is running a Kid’s Games camp for over 200 kids? The answer: teamwork.

The effort that was begun by Joe Souza’s Celebration Church in 2005 has now been officially handed off to Burus. And with the help of Tanner Turley and his team from Redemption Hill Church Medford, MA, the event was a great success.

“It’s incredible,” Burus said, “the welcome  we received and the way the community just embraced us. We are looking forward to great things with this ministry in the future.”

Burus is planning to relocate to Charlestown in 2013. He will begin working with Turley and Jon Chasteen at Redemption Hill before being sent out formally.
