After serving as a local pastor for five years and then traveling as an itinerate revivalist for another five years, God placed a vision within the heart of Pastor Kevin to plant a church that would break down the religious barriers that divide so many in the Christian community and create a place where people from many different church backgrounds could find a place to worship and feel right at home. Eagle Heights is the realization of that vision. Loving God and Loving People is more than a mission statement to us, it is the heartbeat and purpose of all that we desire to be as a church.
Eagle Heights held its first service on January 30, 2000 in Pastor Kevin’s home with 24 people in attendance. The Lord has graciously added to the church over the years moving the congregation to a small building in his backyard that held 120 people to two different worship facilities on our current property, before settling into the wonderful 1200 seat auditorium that we currently occupy.
Pastor Kevin decided upon the name “Eagle Heights” because of two scriptures found in the Old Testament:
Exodus 19:4 'You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to Myself.
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
