Why We Love This Opportunity *
Mechanicsville Christian Center is very healthy as a church when it comes to attendance, outreach, facilities, and finances. They have long tenured staff who describe the staff environment as “Family.” MCC is part of the Assemblies of God and passionate about missions and reaching young families. MCC has a great history and reputation in the community. As they honor the past, they are looking to the future for all that God has for them.
Church or Org Description *
Mechanicsville Christian Center was conceived 45 years ago in the hearts of a small group of Christians who were part of a charismatic home Bible study in Mechanicsville. Along with several people from West End Assembly of God, they founded MCC. Their first weekly service was held on June 15, 1975 at the Hay Market Dinner Theater with 50 people present. From the beginning, their founding members placed a high emphasis on young people and missions. These priorities are still very present today and can be seen in their thriving kid’s and student’s ministries and their vibrant mission’s program. Over the years MCC has continued to build, enlarge, and update their facilities in keeping with their growing attendance and expanding vision. Today MCC runs around 1050-1100 on a typical Sunday morning. About 20% of that increase has taken place over the past 18 months. MCC is enthusiastic about their future and impact God is enabling them to have in their community and around the world.
