Community Pentecostal Worship Center started in a little one room church in Germantown,Ohio with a congregation of 8 primarily all family. As the church began to grow we had to look for another facility. Pastor Roger Mullins a local pastor offered Pastor Sammy his church on off nights. Pastor Sammy greatly accepted and God began to bless and perform many miracles while at that location. A short time later Pastor Sammy heard of a garage that was for rent. A garage it was, hydraulic lifts and all. CPWC tackled the challenge with great faith and before you knew it; the Keister Rd location was born. That building became too small so then our next door to go thru was a gymnasium we shared with a Seventh Day Adventist church.
Pastor Sammy & Sherry always knew that God had a plan and we would have ourown church someday. It was during a revival with Pastor Mark Kleete that a prophesy from God came forth from his servant. Pastor Mark told Pastor Sammy: “The Land That God Promises Is the Land That God Gives”. Pastor Sammy immediately received that word; so much that he had a banner on the gym wall the next night. Those words we stood on a quoted many times even when it seemed that having our own location was never insight, we still held on.
Pastor Sammy went three nights without sleep one week. God would wake him up and tell him what he needed to do. The call of full time pastorship had been spoken. A meeting was called with the members of CPWC and the announcement was made: Pastor Sammy would be resigning from his job to become full time pastor. Such a great step of faith it was for this young couple with four children, but Pastor Sammy knew what the Lord had said.
Just a few months later Pastors Sammy & Sherry found them selves breaking ground on 10 acres of prime real estate. God wanted to see if they would take the first step. They did and He rewarded the church for their faith.
CPWC is now in a building program with 3 phases designed and ready to construct. Currently the congregation is having service in phase (I) a gorgeous multi-purpose building that will eventually be utilized for youth functions and administration. We look forward to starting construction on phase (II) Come be a part of a thriving vision. Come and Experience the Vision of CPWC.
