Elevation exists "so that people far from God will be filled with life in Christ." That's the vision that was planted in the heart of Pastor Steven Furtick at the age of 16. In 2005, God assembled a group of families around Pastor Furtick to begin seeing this vision come to life. In February of 2006, Elevation Church launched its first worship experience. Two and a half short years later Elevation Church is meeting in multiple locations with a weekly attendance that has topped 4,000.
