About Tavistock Missionary Church
In 1986, 6 couples met weekly for a Bible Study, using a tape series by Charles Swindoll, called “Improving Your Serve.” During those studies, they felt the Lord’s call to start a Missionary Church in the Tavistock area. Glenn Gibson, Director of Evangelism and Church Extension for the Canada East District of the Missionary Church of Canada, conducted a study of the area and in May 1987, Tavistock was approved as a target community for church planting. A Steering Committee of those interested in a church in Tavistock, assisted by a representative from Bethel Missionary Church in New Dundee, began to meet. We are thankful for the prayer, encouragement, and financial support of Bethel through those first several years.
Our first service was held at the Tavistock Public School on February 7, 1988. During that month, several evening services drew a number of people from the community. After occupying several temporary locations, during the church’s early years, we purchased land in 1995 with plans to begin construction of our current church building. We broke ground in 1998, and moved into our current facility in September of 1999.
Our current pastor, Rev. Hugh Rutledge has been with the church since July, 2000.
