Fruitful Church Plants

About The Author

Brian Warth is the founding pastor of Chapel for Change, a multi-ethnic, city-focused church that is a catalyst of restoration and an instrument of God to impact the world with the Gospel.


This is an inspirational story, a big story within the Free Methodist Family.

Light & Life North Long Beach has been on the front lines of church planting for 20 years now. Pastor Larry Walkemeyer’s vision of being a river church drives the church to give more than they receive.

In 2012, Light & Life launched what has become the strongest church plant in FMCSC’s history, Chapel of Change Christian Fellowship in the Paramount/Long Beach area. Chapel of Change is lead by Pastor Brian and Laura Warth and a group full of fired up believers.

Since its launch, Chapel of Change has been dedicated to being a multi-ethnic, city-focused, river church. Over 300 people have surrendered to the Lord and 500 service hours have been given to help beautify the city. Chapel of Change has recently launched a Spanish service and has just recently went multi-site with a second campus in the Bixby area of Long Beach.

“Our fruitfulness goes back to Pastor Larry Walkemeyer being willing to sacrifice leaders from his church to start this new community of faith,” Pastor Brian shares.
