Center Grove Baptist Church, Clemmons – Origin:
Center Grove Baptist Church, Clemmons began in the spring of 1914, with a group of cotton and tobacco farmers gathering under a brush arbor in a place known as Snow Hill, located behind a farm on what is now known as Center Grove Church Road.
They were the practical “get it done” kind of people. With land donated from one family, and lumber from another, they built their first worship center, a chapel, by hand.
This small group of rural folk was noteworthy in a few ways. They loved Christ, the Bible and people, and they were willing to sacrifice themselves for all of the above.
In the early 1990s, Center Grove Baptist Church, Clemmons was catapulted from a small rural congregation of 50 attenders to a very large one of over 800 in this small rural setting, at the end of a road going nowhere. During that period of growth Center Grove Baptist Church, Clemmons expanded its capacity as a new, larger building was constructed down the road to what is the present Clemmons campus.
During a time of transition, Center Grove Baptist Church, Clemmons found herself without a Senior Pastor. It was in this season that Dr. Steve Corts came on board as a consultant for the struggling church, and was then offered the opportunity to lead Center Grove Baptist Church, Clemmons as Senior Pastor.
