The Lord has richly blessed the Madison Heights journey!
In 2004, three middle Mississippi PCA churches (Pear Orchard, Highlands and Lakeland) joined forces to plant a new church in the Madison area. In January of 2005, Rev. Hunter Brewer was called from the staff of Lakeland PCA to serve as a church planter. In late 2005, a core group of interested folks began to meet weekly at Highlands and unanimously agreed to name this new work Madison Heights Church PCA. On September 10, 2006, Madison Heights Church held its first public worship service at St. Joseph Catholic School gymnasium in Madison. In November 2007, the Presbytery of Mississippi established Madison Heights Church as a member church congregation of the Presbytery.
In 2009, the church bought property on Bozeman Road and began developing a master plan for the future. On November 6, 2011, Madison Heights broke ground on its first building. On September 16, 2012, we celebrated the dedication of our new building which provided worship seating for 450 along with new nursery and educational facilities.
On December 31, 2013, Rev. Brewer followed God’s call to leave Madison Heights to establish the Mid-South Church Planting Network. In January 2014, Rev. Randy Rhea, Associate Pastor, succeeded Rev. Brewer as Senior Pastor. In March 2014, Dr. Chuck Frost was called to join the pastoral staff as Executive Pastor.
In recent years, many have come from the Madison area to join the Madison Heights family. Our growth has come through conversion to faith, reaffirmation of faith and church transfers. Currently, Madison Heights is a congregation of more than 600 members.
