About Faith Gospel Church:

The congregation of Faith Gospel first assembled in 1993, when a number of Christians decided to leave Cedar Grove Freewill Baptist Church. The original location of the first church building was in a remodeled store in Mineral Wells, WV. The earliest records show them having a formal service on September 26th, 1993. Faith Gospel continued to assemble at the Mineral Wells location until Easter Sunday, 1997. On that day the church had its grand opening service at the current site on Lost Pavement Road. Faith Gospel Church was totally independent until February 12th, 1994, when the church body voted to join the Scioto Valley Christian Conference. This conference of churches was a fellowship of various non-denominational churches throughout southern Ohio and West Virginia. Faith Gospel remained in the Scioto Valley Conference until October 2000. In February 2001 the church body approved the existing Articles of Faith, Rules and Practices, and Church Covenant (by-laws). 


The Senior Pastor will work within the vision and mission of Faith Gospel Church, under the direction of the Holy Spirit and the Leadership Team (Deacons & Trustees). He will provide leadership for planning and coordinating of activities, functions, and events of Faith Gospel Church. He is expected to be the leader and to provide the guidance necessary to get the most and best results from the ministry programs. His life must be a model that demonstrates he is a faithful Christian, husband and/or father. He must set a proper example of Christian behavior at all times. The Senior Pastor will partner with church leaders, staff, and membership to ground the congregation in the foundations of faith so that they may mature as church leaders and committed followers of Christ.
