About Us


Our Story
  • In 1946 Grace Methodist Church and St. John's Methodist Church merged to form Christ United Methodist Church under the leadership of Dr. Dorsey Kelly.
  • In 1946 the first phase of the east educational building was constructed.
  • In 1954 the sanctuary was constructed.
  • On May 15, 1955 the first service was held in the sanctuary under the direction of Rev. Charles Simpson
  • Many great activities and ministry that benefited the community were done for years until the church began to experience a period of decline and economic challenge.
  • On December 25, 2011 Rev. Semaj Y. Vanzant, Sr. became the senior pastor of this ministry. He was joined in ministry by the associate pastor, Rev. Linda Truitt.
  • Under Pastor Vanzant's leadership the church grew over 300% in worship attendance, outreach ministry, and budget.
  • On December 31, 2013 the name Christ United Methodist Church was retired.
  • On January 1, 2014, The Christ Experience was born from the desire of a group of people willing to make the necessary adjustment to become a vital ministry.
  • On December 15, 2015, Rev. Nicholas Lee became the senior pastor of The Christ Experience.
