Frontline Family Church was birthed out of Elim Fellowship in April 2010 in Elmira, NY. It was founded by Senior Pastor Randy Jackson, who has a vision and love for the City of Elmira and its people. The church originally started in Pastor Randy’s home in Horseheads, NY with approximately 15-20 people attending. Within 4 months, the attendance doubled and a decision was made to move into downtown Elmira. A second move took the church to Elmira’s George Washington School. As the church continued to grow, the need for our own facility was becoming more and more urgent.
After a lot of prayer, Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Elmira Heights became available, and in June of 2011, it became the home of Frontline Family Church. Since June of 2011, many lives have been transformed by God’s hand and we have seen Him move in the miraculous. In September of 2011 the first bus rolled out to start busing in people & children from all walks of life.
As we continued to move forward, God provided an opportunity for us to purchase our own facility, and in July of 2012, the agreement was signed and the purchase of Frontline Family Church was made final. As God has steadily had His hand on this ministry, it is our belief that every person has a ministry and that God will make the impossible . . . the possible. All we have to do is BELIEVE!
Through our vision of ‘Reaching People . . . To Reach People . . . Right Where They’re At’, living passionately for Jesus, loving unconditionally and leading our families, church and communities boldly to Christ, we are fulfilling our calling as a church to reach people both locally and globally with the good news of Jesus Christ.
