Our Story

How it all started...

In January of 2011, our pastor and his family moved from Davenport, IA to Chattanooga, TN to begin the process of planting what was then called Harvest Bible Chapel Chattanooga. Only knowing one couple, Mike & Jaime began hosting vision meetings in a local home as they began building a core group for launch.

On September 18th, 2011 with 40 adults committed to the core group the church opened its doors for the first time as they began meeting  in the gym of the East Brainerd Upper Elementary School (previously known as  David Brainerd Christian School). 

Finding A Home

In early 2015, after moving to the old East Brainerd Elementary school at the corner of East Brainerd Rd. and N. Joiner Rd we were contacted by Covenant Baptist Church located right down the street.

After several meetings with their church leadership, they decided to gift our church the property located at 1640 N. Joiner Rd. where we began meeting in September of 2015.

Since being gifted this property we have purchased two additional properties around the church and are praying about how God would have us steward this property for his purposes and for his glory. 

A New Identity

In the beginning our church  identified with a family of Harvest Bible Chapel churches and we are so thankful for the relationships that were developed over the years. However, God had begun stirring in our hearts a new vision and direction that after much prayer and planning culminated in us changing our name from Harvest Bible Chapel to Gospel Community Church.  

Where we are headed...

We have seen many changes over the first 10 years of our church, but we believe God is just getting started. We are praying, seeking and inquiring of the Lord for what he has next for GCC. Our prayer is that over the next 10 years we will see more and more people become and grow as disciples of Jesus and we hope you will join us in seeking to live all of life for His glory both here in Chattanooga and beyond.
