Since 2008, First Apostolic Church of Maryville (FAC) has been on a journey we refer to as “The Maryville Miracle.” This term was coined as the result of many financial blessings and miracles that have taken place among the families of FAC because of their debt-free approach to building an 80,000 square foot multi-purpose facility. Senior Pastor Kenneth Carpenter felt compelled to follow this God-given direction to build debt-free and support missions, instead of sacrificing missions giving to pay interest on a bank loan. Through the faithfulness and sacrifice of our local congregation and friends, FAC Maryville has been blessed to invest more than $6.7 million into this debt-free building project that is 75% complete.

Has missions support suffered during the building of the new campus?

Missions support has not suffered during this building project, in fact it has increased. Pastor Carpenter made a commitment at the outset that missions giving would increase each year. FAC has given more than $1.5 million to missions during the same time that more than $6.7 million (debt-free) has been invested in the new campus.
