Our History

On December 31, 1995, Fairview Community Church conducted its first Sunday morning worship service in the living room of one of three founding couples. FCC multiplied so that the first Resurrection Sunday service was on April 7, 1996, at the Lions Club in Fairview, Tennessee. Later because of our growth, FCC held its first Sunday morning worship at Fairview High School on July 17, 1996. Several years later, the church began worship services at Westwood Elementary School on Highway 96 in Fairview.

On June 30, 1996, 74 were in attendance at the ordination service of our founding Pastor Mike Mangrum. As FCC grew, the congregation's needs increased so that as of February 1, 1999, Pastor Mike Mangrum became FCC's full-time Pastor. On January 23, 2000, FCC held the ordination service for the first six deacons at FCC.

In May of 2005, FCC purchased our current property (4 acres) and building at 7116 Cumberland Drive, Fairview, Tennessee. Years ago, through God's magnificent grace and provision, FCC paid off the mortgage on the property and building. As a result, for many years, FCC has been debt-free! Praise the Lord!

On February 1, 2016, Senior Pastor Mike Mangrum retired to become Pastor Emeritus, and his son, Josh, assumed the calling of Senior Pastor at FCC. Josh had been the Youth Pastor at FCC for the previous 15 years.

From February 1, 2016, to the present, Pastor Josh carries out his calling from God to preach salvation through Jesus Christ and the sanctification of the saints.
