Advancing His Kingdom in a Culture of Love and Healing
The first six months in North Carolina Sam and his wife, Eliza dedicated their time to fasting and prayer to receive the vision and direction of the Lord. After that period, they began to have small group meetings at their home where they began to relationally connect with people of the area. The very first meeting began with 13 young college students from a local college. This became a very exciting time in Sam and Eliza's life as they became an integral part in seeing God touch and transform their lives, one by one. Over time, the small group meeting grew and became too large to meet in a home, so they moved the gathering to a Holiday Inn just east of Asheville. The church met there for nearly nine months and then grew out of that space as well. The next shift moved the church into an old furniture building in Swannanoa, which is where the church is now established. Immediately following the move, the church was very blessed to have Crosswalk Church join and partner with them in their very first meeting. Crosswalk Church officially became a part of King of Glory Christian Church and this group of people continues to bring a tremendous amount of wisdom and experience to help steward the journey that God had begun. In the current phase of our journey together, King of Glory is focused on advancing His Kingdom in a culture of love and healing. Our focus in worship, outreach, service and community all center around this mission. King of Glory is now known as a regional church, impacting hundreds in Western North Carolina and beyond with the power and presence of Jesus, and the message of His Kingdom!
