At our 1994 Christmas Banquet, our pastor, Bro Larry Montgomery, passed out acorns. He then challenged us to make 1995 the year that we dedicated ourselves to personal growth, reminding us that a towering oak was once an acorn.
The challenge remained beyond 1995 and in 1996 when looking for a name that reflected our purposes and goals as a church, someone mentioned “Towering Oaks Church”. From that, the idea developed.
It has been noticed by some that there are no oak trees around our church building, so why the name? When we explain our name represents people, not trees; they then understand.
