History of the Congregation

In the early 1990"s, God began to stir the hearts of people in the Glenwood, Starbuck, Brooten, and surrounding communities. After much prayer and profiling of the Pope County area, a few Assembly of God Pastors from neighboring towns secured the Blue and Gold Room in the newly renovated Central Square building for the purposes of starting a Bible Study. Around Easter of 1995, a Bible study was started on Tuesday nights with a small group of people from the community.

Three years prior to this , Pastor Denny Curran, one of the church planting facilitators, invited Pastor Mark Geselle and his wife Kathy, who were youth Pastors in Michigan, to prayerfully consider planting a church in Glenwood. In September of 1995 they accepted the call to serve in Glenwood. The young Minnewaska Assembly of God held its first Sunday service on November 5, 1995 in the E.N.Norgaard Elementary School cafeteria with 44 people in attendance and soon after moved into the gymnasium. Without a permanent facility, a prayer meeting was held each Tuesday night at the church office at 102 SE 1st St, and "kid's Explosion" was held on Wednesday evenings at Parkview Court. Six months after the church began we hired our first Youth Pastor Matt Cordes and began reaching the youth of our community.

In the Winter of 1996, services were moved to the Minnewaska Area High School Auditorium, which accommodated the growing congregation. Because of faithful giving to the work of God, the church was able to purchase 7 acres of land in Glenwood near the site of the Pamida Store in 1999.

Construction began on the 10,747 square foot facitily in the Summer of 1999. Our first Sunday service in the completed building was held February 20th, 2000 and the church was formally dedicated on June 25th, 2000, by District Superintendent, Clarence St. John

Even though the location of our church has changed, our vision has remained the same. We hold to the teaching of the authoritative Word of God, and our pentecostal distinctive in equipping the believers to spread the love of Jesus Christ and to care for and one another. We seek to worship the Lord with all or our being and to actively pursue Him as we minister to our families, workplace and community. "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer" Acts 2:42

No matter what your background or place in life, God desires to pursue you and for you to live the abundant life that he has created for you in Him.

Come Worship With Us.
