Question: Where do you find hope?

Growing up in Raymond, Josh Gagnon wasn't much of a church-goer. Today, at 33, he leads the Next Level Church, headquartered in Somersworth, as pastor to a congregation approaching 2,000 worshippers every weekend at four locations in three states.

The rapid growth of the church in just five years since its founding reflects the emergence of "megachurches" as a force to be reckoned with in Christianity.
