Our History & Mission

The History of Byron Community Church

In 1979, the elders of North Park Community Church, under the pastoral leadership of Bill McRae, appointed four men to give leadership to a new church ministry called Byron Community Chapel.

Craig Baynham left an associate leadership role at North Park and pastored Byron Community Chapel until 1981.

Paul Furseth was called to pastor the congregation at Byron in the fall of 1982. In 1994, Paul and Ruth Furseth left to pursue ministry as foreign missionaries.

John Mackie began his ministry as pastor in July, 1996. During this time, the leadership decided to change the name to Byron Community Church to better reflect the vision of the ministry.

Our Mission is to foster the faith of our congregation, to mature (become complete) in Christ, to powerfully impact our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ, to glory of God. (Col. 1:28)
