The Park first opened in 2003 as a portable church meeting in a local high school. After reaching 500+ in attendance, the church had enough people and resources to acquire land and build a building in 2010. Since then, The Park has expanded its current facilities twice, opened a second location, started a youth ministry in a nearby community targeting underprivileged teens, and started an online venue.
