There is so much you may not know about out Pastors! Did you know that after Pastor Grainger and Pastor Jo Ann’s arrival to Ebenezer in 1983 that through God and their anointed leadership, the church experienced incredible growth! In 1986, they started holding three services at Friendly H.S. every Sunday to accommodate the members. We entered “Ebenezer the Beautiful,” the current sanctuary in 1994.
