Candies Creek is the longest continuing church in Bradley County. The church was founded by three pioneer families that met in the home of Robert and Caty Mahan to form the church that God has prospered and protected through these many years.
David Landrith was called as pastor, and the church experienced unprecedented numerical growth!
Dr. Jamie Work was called as pastor, and the church sent many for the glory of God across town and across the world!
Stan Gibson was called as pastor, and you can come be part of how God is leading us to build on specific statements Jesus used for being true, known, proven disciples.
Pastor Stan Gibson, his wife Heather and their seven children come to us from Marion, South Carolina. Stan is passionate about leading the body of Christ and walking with them so they can follow the teachings of Christ on being His “real, known and proven” disciples. Jesus said we need to abide in the Word (Jn. 8:31), Love One Another (Jn. 13:35), and Bear much fruit (Jn. 15:8).
Jonathan and his wife Amanda have three sons and a daughter, Corban, Jadon, Kyson, and Livia. He has a passion for disciple making and the application of God’s Word to his life and other’s lives as well. Those passions stem from his favorite verse, which is James 1:22 that says, “Do not merely listen to the word and so deceive yourself, but do what it says”.
