A People Finding and Following Jesus Beyond Sundays
New Community Church in Buckhannon, WV was planted in 2012 with the vision of influencing their community, but even more so, the state of West Virginia for the glory of God. Their mission is to love God, love their community, and strengthen families.
Justin Bowers, the pastor of New Community-Buckhannon, met Bobby Benavides in 2016. Bobby had been doing youth ministry for over 16 years, but felt led to pursue a different role in church leadership, and God guided Justin and Bobby's path together. In October 2016, Bobby was approved to become a church planter through the Evangelical Covenant denomination and in July 2017, the launch team began to meet to develop the plan for the new church plant.
New Community Covenant Church: Elkins was officially launched on October 15th, 2017. God has great things in store for Elkins, WV and New Community will be a part of His great work in the area.
We hold our weekly worship Gatherings at 10:30am every Sunday morning at the Phil Gainer Community Center
(142 Robert E. Lee, ext Elkins, WV 26241).
