【2020 GTCA City — Columbia, SC】

The Church in Columbia
The church in Columbia was established in 1987 after a group of saints migrated to the area in the mid-1980s to join some local saints. The church has met in the saints’ homes and in a small business owned by saints for many years. Recently, the church obtained a meeting hall that can seat approximately 100 saints. There is room to care for the children, and it is suitable for larger gatherings. It also has a large number of parking spaces. About 22 saints currently gather on Lord’s Day mornings, including about 6 children. Saints also meet in small groups in the
homes for prayer and vital group meetings. The racial composition of the church is about 50% White, with the other 50% a mix of Asian, Black, and Hispanic.
For many years, there has been a burden for the main campus here—the University of South Carolina—but there has never been a club or campus team. The burden for the campus is even stronger now, thanks to the Lord’s operating in the migration of saints here and the purchase of a house close to the campus. We also have a brother who is a faculty
member at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine.
