Our Heritage

Greater Life Church was born on Mother’s Day 2017. However, GLC can look back at an over 90 year heritage of God’s faithfulness.

Garr Church was founded in 1930 by Dr. A.G. Garr, who was one of the first Pentecostal missionaries and evangelists to present a Full Gospel message. Over the Years there have been thousands of people saved, healed and have experienced the power of God through this ministry.

One of the other unique elements of our heritage is how in 2017 Garr Church and Mint Hill Community Church came together believing that greater things could be accomplished together.

Pastor Andrew Byrd (Mint Hill Community Church Founder) and Pastor Randy Briscoe (Pastor at Garr Church) agreed that God had called them to pursue greater things together. On May 7th, 2017 both churches voted unanimously to become Greater Life Church and since that day we have seen growth in our church, in our relationships and in our ministry team.Our Heritage


Our Mission

We GATHER in the presence of God and others. The Bible says in Hebrews 10:25 “… let us not neglect our meeting together as some people do…” At GLC we want to make sure that we provide a dynamic worship experience for our church to GATHER weekly in the presence of God and Others.

We GROW in relationship to God and others. One of the realities of our world is that living things grow. At GLC we take spiritual growth very seriously. The word discipleship speaks of our growth to become all that God has called us to be. We provide discipleship classes and GROW groups to equip everyone at GLC to GROW in relationship with God and one another.

We GO in the power of God to reach others. Every believer is called to be witnesses to their community for Jesus. It is our hope at GLC that each person will make a habit of GATHERing, GROWing and GOing! Greater Life Provides missional opportunities for you to GO and be a witness as well as to minister to those in need.
