Cross and Crown CITY CHURCH was established by Pastors/Evangelists Danny and Linda Morgan in 2010. Within six months of their first church service being held in a Hampton Inn motel conference room, they grew enough to purchase their present facilities. Dan and Linda serve as lead pastors of CITY CHURCH and directors of The Morgan Family Ministries, INC. The Morgan Family Ministries, INC. is the parent organization of The Potter’s House Men’s Center, Foster, Ky, The Good Samaritan Thrift Store, Silver Grove, Ky. as well as CITY CHURCH Newport, Ky.
Pastors Paul and Melissa Woosley joined the pastoral staff of CITY CHURCH in August of 2018. They have served as lead pastors in the State of Florida with the Church of God of Cleveland,Tennessee for the past 15 years. Under their leadership their congregation grew from a membership of 10 people to 600 in Ocala, Florida. In 2017 they established Life Church of God in Avon Park, Florida which has already grown to a membership of 75 the first year. The Woosleys are a dynamic preaching and singing family.
CITY CHURCH is located in the heart of the city with a heart for the city. A city once known as Sin Town USA, Newport echos the sounds of the roaring 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Our prayer at CITY CHURCH is to be used by the Lord to help bring the City of Newport out of the darkness of the past into the glorious light of the Gospel of Christ. Pastor Morgan was brought up in Newport and rode his bicycle throughout the town as a child. His father Rev. O.A. Morgan built a great church and ministry in Newport and surrounding area. He and his ministry helped to plant seven other churches in the area that continue until this day. Now CITY CHURCH gladly continues the vision and burden that he carried for this city and the area until his dying day.
CITY CHURCH is a Pentecostal church with strong emphasis on evangelical preaching and deeper commitment. We strongly encourage the Pentecostal experience and the operation of the gifts of the Spirit. Our services are filled with praise and worship. Our praise and worship band consists of piano and strings, drums, bass, guitar, sax and other horns, violin and other instruments but at times may be as simple as nothing but an acoustic guitar.
We at CITY CHURCH would love to learn more about you and your experience with the Lord so we may know how to best serve and encourage you in your walk with the Lord. Please stop by CITY CHURCH and visit with us so we can begin our journey together.
