Four years after Erik started pastoring Center Point Church West, COVID-19 caused the church to suddenly stop meeting in person. By God’s grace and sovereignty, this happened at the end of a building campaign for a more permanent facility.
Center Point Church West had prayed for a permanent facility for years. From an elementary school, to a run-down hotel, the members of Center Point Church West had a desire to meet in corporate worship and met where they could. Members watched God’s plan unfold as he provided a church building off Clays Mill Road.
At this time, the elders of Center Point Church and Pastor Erik started praying and seeking God’s will for the west campus to become an autonomous church. After much prayer and discussion, Center Point West followed God’s lead to become Gospel Collective Church in January 2021.
