About Pinnacle Church

Like many things, Pinnacle Church began as nothing more than a curious dream, and one of reverential beginnings, no less, thought up in the midst of a seminary classroom by Pastor, Heath Davis.

The dream? What would a church look like where anyone could come; a place free of judgment and political agendas; a safe haven for the broken, where those who’ve lost their way can rediscover a fruitful life in Jesus? Why can’t such a place exist, thought Heath?

With that idea buried in his heart, and an equally deep passion to reach people who were far from God no matter their walk in life, Heath and a group of close friends began to pray about where to lay the groundwork for such a place. Seeking answers, and guided by nothing more than their own cast iron faith in whatever the outcome of Gods plan may be, they were blindsided by the realization that a great need existed right here in Haywood County for that very place; a place known now as Pinnacle Church. The only question following that realization was this: How?

But as God would have it, in 2005, the door was opened for Pinnacle to partner with Biltmore Baptist Church to begin their ministry in Canton. With generous support, Pinnacle opened its doors for public services in March 2006 and for four years met at Pisgah High School.

During this time, the church experienced exponential growth, which fell right into God’s next open door, the acquisition of 28 acres of land in the heart of Canton. And in 2010, Pinnacle Church moved into its new home where they reside to this day.

So what do they have to show for it? Well, perhaps the better question is; what does God have to show for it? After all, God’s plan was never to bring together a group of friends, perform good deeds, or construct a building. God’s plan was to reach those in desperate need of his word, right here in Haywood County. Over the past seven years, Pinnacle Church has baptized over 250 people, added numerous growth groups that minister to locals on a weekly basis, and every Sunday, hundreds of people attend engaging, encouraging, God focused worship services.

“The culture of the church is focused on what matters”, says Heath. “We don’t sweat the minors so we can focus on the majors. And what’s more is that here at Pinnacle, we love to worship, we love each other, and we have fun serving God!”
