Rahson Rick (R.R.) Jordan
Ministerial and business visionary, Pastor Rahson Rick (R.R.) Jordan, founded The Advancing Church, in 2009. It was a small beginning, in a storefront church in South Saint Louis, pastoring a small, 10-member congregation. Today The Advancing Church is a thriving ministry in the city of Saint Louis. Before founding CFC, Pastor Jordan began fulfilling the call on his life by serving the body of Christ through ministry in 2002. Pastor Jordan's goals are simply to advance the kingdom of God. He has a heart to see the lost come to Jesus Christ. Through love and dedication God has enabled him to empower the oppressed, marginalized, and ostracized by teaching them to operate in faith in order to see the manifestation of life more abundantly.
In addition to his ministry duties, Pastor Jordan has spent ten plus years in the not-for-profit sector working with youth and adults dealing with issues of promiscuity, substance abuse, and homelessness.

In efforts to address his concerns, Pastor Jordan founded the Iron Men Empowerment Group. Men meet each month for empowerment sessions designed to shape and assist men in launching forward in their destinies. These power packed sessions are a place for men to come together and deal with real life and spiritual issues.
