The team is far more important than the "church planter" or the pastor. We truly believe that God has been preparing this team for years. From uncanny circumstances to bizarre coincidences, God's fingerprints can be seen all over the situations that have brought this team together. Each person has specific gifts and skills that God has blessed them with to allow them to glorify Him while serving through the local church. Legacy City is a team effort; no one person can carry the load and no one person is more valuable than the next. We succeed together and fail together, but do all for the glory of God. It is everyone that calls Legacy City home that really makes the difference. God has brought some incredible people and is using them in huge ways already.

about the church planters
jenn and robbie earle
Jenn and Robbie met while in college working at a Christian summer camp. After their Summer serving together, they decided to attempt long distance dating since Jenn went to school in Mississippi and Robbie attended college in South Carolina. They are one of the rare long distance success stories, because after dating for 18 months, they were engaged in Times Square on New Year's Eve. They married six months later on a sweltering day in Belmont, NC and have been pursuing Christ together ever since. Jenn and Robbie have three beautiful children (Ainsley, Naomi, and Levi) and a Chocolate Lab named Max. Although they have always felt like church planting could be a part of God's plan for them, Robbie felt initially called and drawn to the next generation and served in student ministry at three churches, each in the Upstate of South Carolina. The final church, though, was a special body of believers in Greenwood, SC, where the Earle's served for six years with middle school, high school, and college students primarily. During the time at this church, God began to change Robbie's desires and passions from a specific targeted ministry to encompass the local church as a whole. These new passions, paired with the amazing opportunity to serve in so many areas at that church (Robbie had the opportunity to lead guest services and media + communications + graphic design during his time there as well), led to God calling the Earle's to explore church planting in the Fall of 2016. They didn't know when or in what city or with what organization, but they knew that God was leading in that direction. After months and months of prayer and research and prayer and conversations and especially prayer, God started opening doors for them to continue their ministry in Greenwood by planting there - thus Legacy City Church was born. Although the dream stretches far beyond Greenwood, God has prepared the way for this new faith community to make a huge impact on Greenwood for the Kingdom and the Earle's couldn't be more humbled and excited to play a role in it!
