Our History

On March 29, 1990, the merging committee for Fairview and Reconciliation Churches met and reported that the congregations of both churches had passed motions to pursue the merger of the two churches. After several months of diligent work by the merging committee, Fairview Presbyterian Church and the Church of Reconciliation took a great step on August 26, 1990, when both churches votes unanimously to petition the Presbytery of East Tennessee to merge the two congregations. On May 5, 1991, a special worship service was held at the Church of Reconciliation building for the purpose of organization and merger as a particular church after the faith and order of the Presbyterian Church of U.S.A. by the Presbytery of East Tennessee. The worship service was led by members of both churches and the sermon was delivered by Rev. Rob Williams, pastor of Northminster Presbyterian Church. Immediately following the worship service, Rev. Frank Jump presided over the election of the first elders for the newly merged church. They were Andre' Boaz, Nan Lindsey, Ruth Blackshear, Neil Prigmore, Carson Bobo, Steve Riggs, Portia Earls, Juana Roberts and James Fields. A reception immediately followed the worship services. On June 9, 1991, the congregation adopted the name Renaissance Presbyterian Church and Harry W. Cooper Jr. was called as the first pastor of Renaissance Presbyterian Church in May of 1993.Double-click here to edit the text.
