In 1961, a group of fourteen consecrated Christians: Bro. and Sis. Phil Jarmon, Bro. & Sis. Elijah Rivers, Bro. & Sis. Eddie Smith, Bro. & Sis. L.K. Shepherd, as well as Bro. & Sis. Jack Harris, led by Rev. & Mrs. W.J. Gaskin met in the home of Bro. & Sis. Ollie Edwards to set in motion their dreams and visions of what they believed were the foundations of both fellowship and service in the body of Christ.
