First Assembly of God Church

Tipton

 

From Moniteau County Missouri History 2000 in article submitted by James Albin:

The First Assembly of God Church in Tipton was pioneered in 1964, by Jack Moore, a native of California, MO.

 

Services were held in the American Legion hall until a building could be completed. The building was started in 1965 and completed in 1966. [It is now known the church building was dedicated in 1965]

 

Jack Moore left Tipton and pioneered a church in Jefferson City, MO. He now (in 2000) serves as Superintendent of the Southern Missouri District of the Assemblies of God.

 

Those pastoring the church have been: Rev Jack Moore, Rev Tom Cannon, Rev David Saffle, Rev David Lewis, Rev Steve Galindo, Rev James Perkins and Don Schutte. An educational wing with a fellowship area in the basement was added in 1978.

 

Structural problems with the original building developed over the years. Because of the cost to fix the old building a need for more space, a decision was made to tear down the sanctuary and build a new one. The Assemblies of God had a MAPS division. One section consists of the RV ministry. Retired professionals travel in RV's to different building sites to help with needed repairs, additions or construction of new facilities. Because of several individuals in the RV ministry and help from several in the local congregation, a new sanctuary with a full basement was finished in 1998. A baptistery was added to the new facility.
