Trinity Christian Fellowship (Morehead, KY)
In the summer of 2003 several families started meeting in each other’s homes. After a while and much prayer, we decided our church would be named “Trinity Christian Fellowship”. However, we needed a church home. We became aware of an unoccupied church building on Dry Creek in Morehead. It was an old building that had not been used in quite some time. Our families got together, cleaned, made some repairs, and made the building usable in record time.
On August 10, 2003, we had our inaugural service as Trinity Christian Fellowship in the building on Dry Creek. During the next month, several members brought the message each week. Realizing we now needed a pastor to lead our flock, Wade Muncy was invited to come and preach for us. We voted on September 7, 2003, and Wade’s first service as pastor was September 14, 2003.
During the next few months, we made several improvements to the Dry Creek property including closing in the picnic shelter so it could be used to hold Children’s Church. Soon, though, we had a (really good) problem—too many children! We then began looking for a larger building.
Through a series of God-led “circumstances,” we discovered we could rent the TNT Gym building on West Main Street. Starting in the summer of 2004, we would set up and tear down our “sanctuary” each week (because the building was still used the other six days of the week as a gym) for our Sunday services. The house next door (we called it the Trinity House) was used for youth, children’s church, offices, and Wednesday evening services. We continued meeting at Dry Creek for some other evening services.
Then, the BIGGEST God-sized event happened! David and Robin Pollitte (owners of TNT Gym) decided to sell—to us! After much prayer, a contract was signed on October 28, 2005.
In the 12 years since we have built a permanent stage, rooms under the stage, made areas for children and youth upstairs, painted, installed a commercial kitchen, and many other improvements.
We thank God for the opportunities He has given Trinity Christian Fellowship and look forward to what He has in store for us in the future!
