Elevation Church is often viewed as an overnight success but what most people do not know is that this church had its beginning in the heart of Pastor Steven Furtick when he was only 16 years old. While reading Jim Cymbala’s book Fresh Wind Fresh Fire he came across a statement on page twenty-three that would change his life forever. I despaired at the thought of my life passing me by without seeing God move greatly on my behalf. That sentence proved to be the catalyst for a life mission of seeing people once far from God filled with life in Jesus Christ through the local church. It was over the next nine years that everything started to come together. In 2005 Pastor Steven along with seven other families sold their homes and quit their jobs and moved to Charlotte NC. On February 5 2006 Elevation opened its doors with 121 people in attendance in the Providence High School Atrium. In just over three years God has moved in amazing ways and has used Elevation Church to change thousands of lives in the Charlotte area. Elevation Church was recently recognized as the 4th Fastest Growing Church in America by Outreach Magazine. Through God’s favor and the relentless pursuit of a singular mission Elevation Church has experienced over 6200 professions of faith and over 1930 baptisms since our launch. From humble and sacrificial beginnings God has placed his hands on Elevation Church and we truly believe that the best is yet to come.
