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.
