The congregation that would one day be known as Discover Christian Church began its life as all ministries do: a bold idea. The Northwest area of Franklin County needed a church, and a group of members from Beechwold Church answered the call to fill this need. But they needed a place. The Farmhouse, would be the congregation's first gathering site.
"The property was purchased and many joyous hours were spent remodeling, painting, cleaning, and preparing our grand old house for the first service. This is said with tongue in cheek remembering the time we all came for prayer meeting and Clayton Grimstad, Harold Grandy, and Cliff Purvis were all covered from head to toe with soot. The old chimney had fallen down when they were working on it and the soot was everywhere."
