Mitchell Looper, Senior Pastor
Pastor Looper accepted Jesus as Lord at the age of five and proclaims that it is the best decision he has ever made. He began singing and traveling with his two brothers as a child. At the age of 10, his father began pastoring so his involvement in the ministry began very early on. Pastor Looper served as the music director of the churches that his father pastored for many years. After graduating from Pickens High School, Pastor Looper attended North Greenville College. After graduation he starting working as a computer programmer/purchasing agent for a corporation.

In 1991, Pastor Looper quit public work and went full time into the ministry of evangelism where he served for 25 years. He was blessed to be the state youth director for the Church of God of Prophecy in South Carolina and traveled throughout the United States as well as Haiti and Peru as the evangelist on mission teams. The Lord has allowed him to rejoice with people who’s lives have been changed by the redemptive power of Jesus Christ. Pastor Looper accepted the pastoral call in 2015 to the Carolina Heights congregation where he still serves today. Pastor Looper’s desire is to be a blessing and witness of the power of God at work in his life. Pastor Looper always wants to be the Pastor/Shepherd that the Lord would have him to be.
