History of Grace Assembly of God New Whiteland IN

1972
Reverend Norton Richardson approaches the Indiana District Leadership in 1972 about planting a church in the New Whiteland area. The first services are held in the New Whiteland Community Center and assumes the name of Pleasant View Assembly of God church. Property is purchased on US Highway 31 for the future construction of a new church building.

1973
Reverend Raymond McCullough assumes the pastorate of Pleasant View Assembly of God in 1973. The church meets on the new property on US Highway 31 in New Whiteland in a trailer that is modified to be a sanctuary. The church will meet in this trailer for several years and experience growth.

1977
Pastor McCullough and congregation build and dedicate a 3,500 square foot facility on the church’s property. Numerous area Assembly of God churches pitch in to help. The building consists of a sanctuary seating 100 people, an office, a nursery, a small kitchen and a small social room. A 1,500 square foot addition is made to the existing building a few years later. This addition would host a new office and five new classrooms. The church grows tremendously under Pastor McCullough’s 16 years of leadership.
