In August 1949, Pastor William Vest and a small group of 21 people desired to worship GOD.

 

They begin to fellowship in a tent along side of 460 East in Forest, Virginia, across from Goode Road.

A few years later, a "little white church" would be built and the church would go through many changes, as well as many pastors over the next several decades.

 

In April 2013, John Sines Jr, would be invited as a guest speaker and that June - he would answer the call to lead the church as the Senior Pastor.

On December 9, 2020, 30 acres of land across the street from the "little white church" was donated, allowing the church an opportunity to thrive.

 

Currently, a building project is being planned & the first phase is schedule to start by November 2021.

 

GOD continues to bless that "little white church" as the ministry fulfills the great commission.
