NO PERFECT PEOPLE ALLOWED
We're a BRAND NEW church in Hazleton! There are no perfect people allowed. We're a community where genuine authenticity is developed rather than discouraged. You'll find that we're a center-city, multi-ethnic, Latino-cultured church.
We have monthly Sunday Gatherings at LCCC in Downtown Hazleton at 10am on the 4th Sunday of each month. We also have weekly Community Groups meeting throughout the Greater-Hazleton area.
Every month, we meet at 10am on the 4th Sunday of the month at LCCC in Downtown. This is a larger community of truth where the gospel is clearly proclaimed and God is worshipped through giving, serving, and singing.More →
We highly value community throughout the week. We want people to engage in smaller communities of truth where the gospel is not only heard, but also seen. We have 6 Community Groups spread throughout the Greater-Hazleton area.

In 2014, long-time friends Andy Tritt & Keith Wagner dreamed of starting a church together in Downtown Hazleton.
In late-2014, their families approached the leadership of Restored Church in Wilkes-Barre about the possibility of partnering to plant a new church in Hazleton.
In 2015, they joined Restored Church and launched a group in Keith & Jen Wagner’s living room to reach their unchurched friends.
In 2016, they expanded from 1 Community Group to 3 Community Groups. They also celebrated their first 3 baptisms.
In June 2017, Pastor Danny Gonzalez moved his family from Miami, Florida to become the Lead Church Planter & Hazleton Pastor.
In July 2017, the Restored Hazleton Launch Team began monthly Sunday Gatherings in Downtown Hazleton at LCCC.
By the end of 2017, Restored Hazleton had celebrated 7 baptisms, and had 4 community groups meeting weekly.
Restored Hazleton continues to move forward in multiplying followers of Jesus. They are working toward planting a center-city, multi-ethnic, Latino-cultured church in Downtown Hazleton.
