Our History

GCA began in June 1973 with 27 members meeting at the YMCA on Greene Street as a result of a gospel crusade convened at the Church of the Atonement under the leadership of Dr. B. Sam Hart of the Grand Old Gospel Fellowship (GOGF).

By its first anniversary (1974), it became necessary for the new assembly to purchase a large house at 610 East Mt. Pleasant Avenue in order to accommodate its rapid growth. However, by the middle of 1975, the house could no longer hold the flourishing assembly.

Dr. Charles I. Hart, the brother of Dr. B. Sam Hart, began serving as pastor of GCA in 1975. Under his leadership, the decision was made to tear down the outgrown facility and replace it with a new, larger and more suitable structure. On Good Friday and Easter Sunday (1990) the assembly moved into its new 450-seat auditorium.

Dr. Charles Hart served as pastor of GCA for about 30 years during which time the church saw significant growth and became known for its unfiltered Bible teaching and worldwide missionary focus.

God continues to provide opportunities for Germantown Christian Assembly to impact this generation for Christ as part of its ongoing commitment to make disciples throughout our city and the world.
