Episode 8: An Interview with Pastor David Beelen – “The History of Worship at Madison Church Over the Past 100 Years.”

Every church has its own story, and our story at Madison Church starts in 1915.  We celebrated our centennial in 2015, and our present Senior Pastor, Pastor David Beelen (known as “Pastor Dave” to most in the church), has been leading this church for nearly one-third of Madison’s existence.  Before leaving on sabbatical, I had an opportunity to interview him, asking him to tell the story of Madison: how it came about in the first place and how it developed the way it did to become the multiethnic church it is today.  In this interview, Pastor Dave traces the development of worship practices over the decades at the church, telling pieces of his own story along the way.
