Daybreak Church is a multi-site Christian & Missionary Alliance church located in Mechanicsburg, PA, just west of the capital Harrisburg. Their model of leadership is “elder led, staff executed” with the two campus pastors who co-lead the church together. Ric Jacobs serves as the Lead Vision Pastor and primarily teaches at the Gettysburg Pike Campus, while Shawn Andrews serves as the Lead Equipping Pastor and primarily teaches at the Orrs Bridge Roach Campus. The church currently sees around 1,000 in total Sunday morning attendance between the two campuses, with Gettysburg Pike seeing around 750 in attendance on their own each Sunday. Both campuses offer two identical modern styled worship, both in person and online.
