Mount Pisgah was founded in 1791 at the same location with 10 members.  Rev. Campbell is the church’s 51st full-time minister.
The building will be adjacent to the present Children’s building and will be connected by a courtyard and hallway.  It will seat 1000 people in semicircular stadium seating mode.  Plans include a state of the art audio visual system and a choir loft that will seat 75.
The architect is David McAbee and the construction company is Durham-Greene.  Greg Thompson is Building Committee Chairman and Brady Freeman is Deacon Board Chairman.  The project manager from Durham-Greene, David Bowen, expects the building to be completed by July 2018.
