Joe Swords, Acts 29 Church Planter

Posted on June 25, 2013

A few weeks ago at Riv, we introduced and promptly sent off a few guys that we call “Church Planting Residents.” Each year, we hire two guys to come in and get trained and coached to plant a church somewhere else. The guys we hired this past year, Joe Swords and Derrick Phillips, have become like brothers to us and we can’t wait to see what God is going to do through their ministry.

So, at the end of my sermon I asked each of them come up and tell us who they are and where they’re going to be planting a church. The first is Joe Swords, who is going to be planting The Exchange Church in Clio, Michigan. Check out this video to learn more about Joe and his family, Clio, Rural Michigan, and how you can help.
