who we are

Our Vision is to empower people to experience a bold and authentic relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Mission is to reach one more for Jesus & to be His hands and feet in our community.

Founded in 1884, Gainesville Church has a long 130 year history in the Gainesville community.  We moved to our brand new facility from our original church building in 2006.  This new facility has enabled the growth of the congregation to over 1,000 members, and has enabled the missions and ministries of Gainesville Church to expand and flourish. 

Benson Mcglone

Lead Pastor

Pastor Benson grew up in San Antonio, Texas and received his undergrad at Kansas State University.  He later received his Masters of Divinity from Duke University in North Carolina.   After pastoring a church in Virginia Beach, Benson joined the staff here at Gainesville Church in 2017 as the church planting pastor of our second campus, Revive House Church.  In 2023, following the retirement of Pastor John, Pastor Benson was appointed as the Lead Pastor of Gainesville Church.  Continuing to see the church grow, sharing Jesus and reaching people who have never been to church has always been Benson's passion!   When he's not serving the church he enjoys spending time with his family, wife Alicia, their young son & their two energetic dogs named Bean and Duncan.  If you've met Benson, you know he is a self proclaimed "nerd" & "super goofy", and on long weekends you can find him riding his bike and spending time with family & friends.
