  • Church Life

    Small Groups

    Mosaic's small groups are at the heart of what we do as a church. They are the foremost place in which relationships are built and in which people connect with God through prayer, worship, service, generosity, and Bible study. People often find that they discover some of their passions and abilities in the midst of meeting with and working with their small groups.

     

    They meet throughout the week at various locations. For details, check our small groups section.

    MosaicKids!

    Mosaic Kids is committed to creating relevant programs for children of all ages to get know Jesus and themselves, as well as develop healthy relationships with others.  Our hope is that our children will embark on a journey of faith during their time with us, and we do this by providing a safe space for them to experience and learn about God in fun and engaging ways.  Our volunteers are dedicated to making sure that church becomes a highlight of the week for the children who are involved.

    Restore

    Restore offers a place for spiritual, emotional, and physical restoration for people who feel stressed out, depressed, exhausted, fearful, or are just in need of a break. Each week, this group reads a poem together and then explores a spiritual practice that participants can do at home throughout their week.

     

    Restore meets at 7:00PM on the 1st & 3rd Mondays of each month at 4933 Locust Street. Contact Joy Howard with questions.

    Morning Prayer

    Morning Prayer is the first prayer of the day in the Liturgy of the Hours, which is a series of prayers in Christian monasticism intended to mark each passing hour with prayer.

     

    The service lasts about twenty minutes. And while childcare is not provided, children are certainly welcome.

     

    This month's Morning Prayer will be held on Wednesday, October 18.

  • Our Team

    Brad Zinn

    Senior Pastor

    Some things to know about Brad… He loves his wife Becca & son Declan, Philly, fancy food, theatre, friends, movies, improv, and the heart-breakers that are the Chicago Cubs.  He’s a pastor because he loves seeing people re-imagine and discover faith in Jesus.

    Michael Furfari

    Director of Prayer Ministries and Administration

    Michael left his fancy banking career to work for the church because he wants to help people get connected to Jesus.

    When he's not at Mosaic, he can be found leading Emmaus, a community of LGBTQ Christians in Philadelphia. His favorite food is ice cream; pizza is a close second.

    Melissa Min

    Director of Children and Families Ministry

    Melissa spends most of her time taking care of her two young sons, exploring the city with them, and having fun watching them grow up with their unique and individual personalities!  Melissa loves to cook - everything from the comfort Korean food she grew up eating to delicious fried chicken and biscuits.  Melissa is a true Philly gal at heart, born and raised in West Philly and now living in the Spruce Hill neighborhood.

    Jamie Grimble

    The Blaze

    Jamie has a funny accent (he is from the U.K) and has over 20 years of experience working with youth. Jamie has a vision to bring Jesus to the youth of Philly whilst making relevant what it means to be a young Christian in today's society. Jamie is a full-time, successful DJ (he likes music).

    Chaz van Voorthuijsen

    Logistics & Building Manager

    Chaz was born in 1950 in Indonesia. In 1954 his parents moved his family to the Netherlands, and then in 1960 they moved again to to New Jersey. He went to college in Michigan where he met and married Andrea Bouwsma. They had our first child Marya there, and then moved to New Jersey, where he began his teaching career. In 1980, Chaz and Andrea had their second child Matthew. Two years later, they moved to Florida, where Chaz taught upper elementary, English, mechanical drawing, phys. ed, GED, and library science. After he retired from library/media in 2010, Chaz assisted in early child care, preschool, and kindergarten. In 2015 Chaz and Andrea moved to Philadelphia to be near their grand daughter Frieda and her parents Marya and Mike.

    Charlene is a doctor but secretly fantasizes about being a pastry chef. She first moved to Philly back in 2006, left for medical school in 2009, and finally moved back for residency in pediatrics in 2014. Despite the academic nature of her introduction to the city, Charlene’s biggest priority and number one goal once becoming a Philly resident was fulfilled in 2007 when she met Boyz II Men. Aside from baking and stellar music, Charlene also loves football, college basketball, the arts, and Philly’s food scene.

    Jim Schroder

    Jim is a native of Atlanta, who also lived in rural Massachusetts and Hartford, CT, before discovering West Philly. Jim became a member of the church in 2009, where he met, and then married, Gail, and they now live a few blocks down Sansom Street, with their son, Gabriel.
