In 2010, it became clear that a new season was upon Pastors Eric and Melissa. After much prayer and fasting, they received further prophetic words of what God would do in New England, specifically Connecticut. There were many incredible and undeniable confirmations: the vision they had long carried had become a “now” season.
In early 2014, Eric, Melissa, and their children Moriah, Lauren, and Christian stepped out in faith to plant Legacy Church. The Lord directed their steps to the greater Farmington area, home to the world headquarters of several large corporations, the UConn Health Center, and strategically located just minutes from the state capital of Hartford.
After months of behind-the-scenes preparation we held our “pre-launch” service in May 2014 at the Hartford Marriott Farmington hotel. The service was attended by over 100 people and was an important step in establishing our Sunday experience. Each week thereafter, our volunteer teams continued to work in excellence to hone our Sunday morning setup routine. Every detail was covered: staging, worship team equipment, Legacy Kids rooms, welcome areas, signage, and more.
In September 2014 we held our inauguration service. Friends and Kingdom family from all over the world came to celebrate the official launch of Legacy Church. The room was filled with a sense of purpose and expectation for what God would do in Connecticut.
