Seeking to Connect with God, Self,  & Others


A Church?

Yes, sort of. The Other Church strives to be a creative and diverse community. Rather than offering answers, we explore the questions. While rooted in the Christian faith, we hold our faith with open hands in order to see and experience the vastness of God. Not all of us identify as christian, and that is okay. In fact, we think that's great!

We are a safe space for all who seek to explore questions about God, life, faith, and purpose. While diversity brings challenges, we believe that in this diversity we are given a larger glimpse of an Infinite God because each one of us is a reflection of our creator. We, as a community, are committed to doing the work diversity and depth require.


What Are We?

We are:

  • Holistic
  • Intentionally Broad in both Belief and Practice
  • Conversational
  • Explorers of the questions of faith and meaning.
  • Actively Engaged in the greater Lancaster community
  • Collaboratively led by teams

Do you have a pastor?

Yes. Jennifer Potter lives with her husband and daughter in Lancaster, PA with a grown son living in Brooklyn, NY. She has lived in several states and has been part of many different church denominations. The experiences led to an appreciation for the variety of ways the Christian faith has been interpreted and practiced, with a recognition of the limitations that each denomination brings. After several years of raising children and a brief stint in financial management, she went to seminary to figure out how to help create a new kind of faith community. She graduated from Lancaster Theological Seminary in 2014 with an mDiv and has been working on this dream ever since. In addition to her role as pastor, she is a chaplain at Lancaster General Hospital, loves to write, spend time with family and friends, and enjoys a good beer or glass of wine. Check out her blog at
