It all began very quietly … a Home Fellowship … a handful of people meeting in a two-story house on Cass Road in Traverse City. But as the group continued to grow they recognized the need for leadership, and in the spring of 1973 an invitation was extended to Jerry (and wife, Karen) Kovacs to become the founding pastor of what was to become the Church of the Living God.
In the decades since that humble beginning, we have had countless opportunities to see God’s power and faithfulness manifested in willing lives. And now, forty years later, we continue the pattern established by Jerry and Karen — solid Bible teaching, closely intertwined lives, and a reliance on the Holy Spirit to lead, guide and empower us…both individually and as a church family.
