Our Pastor


Pastor Lusk has been the Senior Pastor of Greater Exodus Baptist Church since 1982 and the church has grown from 17 members to over 2,000 under his leadership. Pastor Lusk has committed himself to service of those in poverty: the jobless, the homeless, the hungry, and those in prison and their children, having left his position as a running back for the Philadelphia Eagles to do so. Pastor Lusk was also known as the praying tailback in the NFL and was recognized by two documentaries from ESPN and NFL Films, as the first player to kneel and pray after scoring. When he was asked what he was doing he replied simply, "I was just giving thanks!"
