Our History

The Midway Church of Christ exists today because of the vision and hard work of many Christians in Walker County. The congregation was formed in the summer of 1969 when the Shiloh and McCollum congregations, after many prayers, merged to form this loving church.

The ideals the Midway church embodied at its beginning included an emphasis on mission work, a desire to reach out to the community, a diligent effort to provide opportunities for growth for all ages, and an eagerness to cultivate a family-oriented atmosphere. The Midway church still strives to carry out the Lord’s will in these same ways today.

Through the years, Midway has been blessed with loving and capable leaders who have shepherded the church. Men who have served as elders at Midway include: Jesse Ellis, Grady Guin, Hubert Taylor, Edgar Terry, Atchel Blanton, Jettie Hoobler, Ben Panter, Tom Wright, J.O. Banks, Frank Barker, Wayne Lowe, Curtis Panter, Bruce Blakemore, Bill Gill, Charlie Kilgore, Kelly Key, Edward Blanton, Raymond Steadman and Randy Wood. Today, Midway works under the oversight of James Brown, Eddie Bull, and Keith Gann.

As laborers together with God, dedicated Christians here have contributed to much spiritual and numerical growth since the inception of the Midway church. May the Lord continue to bless the vision and work of His church here at Midway as we endeavor to carry out His mission.
