Our story is one of unity. Oliver Creek Church of Christ launched in March 2007 when two congregations united together, Brownsville Road Church of Christ and Twin Oaks Church of Christ. Unity really gets to the heart of who we are. Throughout our history, we’ve been a place for healing. Many of our members have found Oliver Creek to be a refuge. We are a loving family made up of people from different backgrounds and experiences coming together for a common purpose—to glorify God, love one another, and bless the world.
Our story is also one of transformation. We’ve been a growing church with a big vision for what God can do through us. Oliver Creek began meeting in a warehouse, but soon moved to our current location in 2009. Our family grew, and soon outgrew our space. In 2012, we added extra parking and the Bill & Frances Hester Annex, which provided additional classrooms and an environment for our teens. The growth continued, and so in 2016 we added a second worship gathering on Sunday mornings. Along the way we’ve also added gifted men and women to help in our growing ministries, along with elders, deacons, ministry team leaders, and ministry staff.
But the real transformation we’re aiming for is God’s work of changing hearts and lives to be like Jesus. In fact, our mission at Oliver Creek is just that, to be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ. Our story is really made up of the many stories of our members taking steps deeper and deeper into the humble way of Jesus and the Spirit-filled life. God has created some amazing stories at Oliver Creek, and the transforming effects ripple through the city of Memphis (partnering with ministries like HopeWorks), the Mid-South (partnering with Paragould Children’s Home), and throughout the world (in places like war-torn Ukraine where we support several missionaries and relief for refugees).
We are thankful to God for his blessings. It’s been an amazing journey for us so far. We’d love to hear about your story and to see how you and your gifts could help write another chapter of unity and transformation here at Oliver Creek.
