A new downtown church led by the Rev. Brooks Pipher was recently spotlighted in the Boca Newspaper in Boca Raton, Fla.

A 2014 graduate of Erskine Seminary, Pipher is a Church Planting Explorer with the Florida Presbytery of the ARP Church. He and his wife live in downtown Boca Raton, and the church meets at a downtown restaurant.

“The goal was to see where God might want us to start a new church,” Pipher told contributing writer Joanie Cox-Henry.

“Downtown Boca Raton seemed like a perfect fit. There’s a lot of people who live downtown and it’s a transient area where it can be difficult to make friends. We want to be there for all the good and bad things happening in someone’s life—someone to celebrate with and someone to be there when times are tougher.”

Pipher was interviewed last year by Heath Milford, a 2011 graduate of Erskine Seminary and a staff member at Erskine Seminary’s Columbia site. Read the interview here.
