It's good to know where a church came from and who they're associated with when you're considering them as your church family. Click here to learn more about our story!
We were sent out of Mercy Hill Church in Greensboro, North Carolina to launch an autonomous (self-led) church. As such, we primarily associate and partner with the Mercy Hill Church Planting Family. We are also a Summit Collaborative church.
Our lead pastor, Carter Mundy, was a directional and shepherding elder at Mercy Hill. You can learn more about Carter by visiting our Leaders webpage. You can also learn more about why we chose to launch a new church in Roanoke, Virginia, by visiting our Why Roanoke webpage.
In 2019, we started with a launch team of 21 people from Mercy Hill, who began moving their lives from Greensboro to Roanoke. Then, March of 2020, things got weird! When the global pandemic hit, we weren’t sure what the future would hold for our church plant. Everything came to a screeching halt (as it did everywhere in the world). But God, as always, was faithful to give our team the opportunities they needed to get to Roanoke anyway. We started meeting virtually in the Spring of 2020, then began meeting in-person with masks Fall of 2020.
We officially launched the church on Easter, April 4, 2021, at the historic Grandin Theatre in Roanoke, then moved our Sunday meetings to 622 Campbell Ave SW, 24016. We celebrated 7 baptisms in our first 8 months! God deserves the glory for that. It’s what we’re here for.
We hope to see more lives changed by the gospel in Roanoke because of our church’s presence. We’re praying for all the other gospel-centered churches in Roanoke, as well. We know we can’t reach Roanoke alone. We hope God will bring a gospel-centered revival and that we just get to participate! We plan to be here for the long haul.
