Update: Pavlovitz visit postponed to Aug. 29-30

John Pavlovitz

Because of travel and other concerns raised by the spread of COVID-19, John Pavlovitz will not be at Irvine United Congregational Church this weekend.

Anyone who registered for the afternoon forum and/or fundraising dinner associated with his visit should have received an email with information about refunds. Questions should be directed to iucc@iucc.org.

Pavlovitz, who was fired by a megachurch because he didn’t fit in, was originally scheduled to be at IUCC on Sunday, March 15 as the featured preacher in the church’s two worship services at 4915 Alton Parkway in Irvine. Worship services will be held as usual, at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m., with interim senior pastor, the Rev. David Pattee, preaching. All are welcome to attend!

John Pavlovitz is a writer, pastor, and activist from Wake Forest, North Carolina. In the past four years his blog Stuff That Needs To Be Said has reached a diverse worldwide audience, with numerous posts going viral.  He has been called “the digital pastor of the resistance.”

A 20-year veteran in the trenches of local church ministry, John is committed to equality, diversity, and justice—both inside and outside faith communities. In 2017 he released his first book, A Bigger Table. His second book, Hope and Other Superpowers, appeared in 2018. Additional information can be found on his website: https://johnpavlovitz.com/
