Pastor Jason and Mrs. Laura Leigh started in ministry in November of 2000. Pastor Jason served as Associate Pastor from this time until 2004. The church name at that time was Christian Fellowship Church and the Pastor was his father, Pastor Danny Wallace. Pastor Jason had heard all of his life that part of the vision of the church was to start other churches along the East Coast. He never thought that he would be the one starting another church.
Then, in December 2004 Pastor Danny passed away and Pastor Jason became the Pastor of Christian Fellowship Church. All the while the Holy Spirit was still speaking to his heart about starting other ministries. In March 2007 Pastor Jason began to get direction from God concerning Marion, SC. As time went by this pull became stronger and stronger. He knew without a doubt that God was instructing them to start a new work in Marion.
Resurrection Life Church started as a bible study on Thursday nights in October 2010. The Holy Spirit said, “This will allow you to build your core group to successfully start this new church.” This is exactly what took place. After just a few months of holding the bible study they were contacted by another local church. The Pastors of this ministry met with Pastor Jason and Mrs. Laura Leigh and gave them their church building and land debt free.
We now had our own church home just as God had promised! We continued to hold the bible study weekly and began the renovation and update of our new church building.
On October 16, 2011 we had our first Sunday morning service as Resurrection Life Church. As we have obeyed God the church has continually grown and lives have been changed for the better. It is amazing what God has done in such little time, but we still believe the best is yet to come!
