LWC's Biography

While serving as pastor of Beverly Open Bible Church in Beverly, Ohio, Pastor Chris felt stirrings to plant a church in his hometown of Parkersburg, WV. After checking his heart thoroughly, and believing that this church plant was the plan of God for his life, Pastor Chris, Chantay, their newborn son, Evan, and and a handful of others started Living Word Church in the City Park Pavilion, where they met until May of that year. They rented two separate facilities until winter of 2002, when they purchased their current church building. We have seen many, many wonderful things through out the years and are committed to this year being OUR BEST YEAR YET!!
