Our Story

How it all started...

In the late winter of 2013, there was a small group of people in search of a Pastor. Simultaneously, there was a shepherd across town without a flock. Pastor's Steve and Tena and a small group of six people met around a single coffee table on a Thursday morning in May of that year. Christpoint Church was launched on Mother’s Day 2013 with a whopping thirty-two  people  in attendance. Some would ask what our goal or vision was in those early days and it was simple, “Welcome home, please stay.” Since that first “nearly empty” service God has shown favor with an expanded children’s wing and nursery expansion. Our youth teams have doubled into two youth groups with one of them meeting off site due to exciting growth.
Christpoint Church has moved from one service, to three Sunday morning services at 8, 9, and 11am.
We were also able to launch a  second campus in the late fall of 2018 in Smithville,TN with a healthy team of individuals and are experiencing the same growth. There are three great elements to church growth and expansion that we have learned since the spring of 2013 and that is:
1.) God loves every face.
2.) God’s anointing is the great builder.
3.) We are the workers of the harvest.

Expanding the vision...

Sometimes in order to lure the rabbit out of the cage you have to dangle a carrot in front of his face. That’s what happened to Pastor Steve in February 2015. He felt that the Lord was telling him  Christpoint Church would reach 1000. That’s a tough number to swallow, especially since our average attendance at the time was only 120 people. However, the vision of Christpoint Church  was never  to focus on reaching 1000 people but to spend time seeking out the Lord and reaching “the one.”  The carrot worked, and we began to realize that even in a rural middle Tennessee town of less than 5000 every face is a soul, every soul needs Jesus and every single one of those faces and souls needs a place to call home. Our vision is to fix our eyes on Jesus and watch him do the impossible one face at a time, to be a powerful presence of Christ in each community and to show the love of God in an exciting, relevant and real way.

Where we are headed...

Christpoint Church has an atmosphere for reaching the lost and encouraging the believer.  Our vision is to reach our cities for Christ. As a multi campus church our vision is to move the gospel of Jesus through the culture of Christpoint into new communities and families. We believe the commission from Christ is just as important today as it was two thousand years ago. We are focused on reaching real people, who are living real lives, even if we have to become uncomfortable in doing so.
