In the 1950's, a dedicated group of men and women began meeting in a small home-church located at New House Branch, Virginia. With a vision to build a house for God, Tookland Pentecostal Church was born. In 1960, the first blocks were laid for a church that would one day reach the world for Christ.
"Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, watching over them - not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away."
