Provision Community Church, Incorporated

Church History 


We, the believers and disciples of Jesus Christ who make up a shared measure of God’s family and Christ’s body known as Provision Community Church, Incorporated, were founded and established by Senior Pastor, Reverend Gary Simmons and Co- Pastor, Reverend First Lady Debra Foxx-Simmons. 


Provision Community Church was given its’ official name by God on June 1, 2017. The name of the church is based on God’s word and promise that He is a Provider and Way-Maker of All things. The Articles of Incorporation of Provision Community Church, Incorporated were filed and approved on November 1, 2017 by the North Carolina Department of the Secretary of State. Presently we have a membership of forty-two active and watch care members.


The first ministry birthed at Provision Community Church was the Youth Ministry. Throughout the summer months of June 2017, twenty-seven youth from Charlotte communities, Greensboro and the state of Florida attended the Summer Bible Study Program at the home of Pastor Gary. Full course meals were lovingly prepared by First Lady and Bible study followed with interactive learning activities by Pastor Gary, First Lady Debbie and others. By summer’s end, the youth were prepared and equipped to return to school with essential school supplies provided by the church and the Word of God. Summer activities provided for the youth included End-of-the-Year Celebrations as Ray’s Splash Planet, the Skating Ring, cook-outs and Back-To-School activities. Our number one goal at Provision Community Church is to make disciples for Christ Jesus by laying a solid Christian foundation within our youth. Our prayers are that our youth learn that there is fun in being saved, serving God and living a life in honor of God.


The church conducted its’ first Worship Service on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at the home of Pastor Gary & Rev. Debbie, First Lady after Pastor Gary served as Interim Pastor at First Fellowship Ministries in Charlotte, NC. 


On Sunday, May 6, 2018, Provision Community Church, Incorporated held its’ first Worship Service at 5212 Monroe Road, Charlotte, NC. Due to having access to the church building only on Sundays, we loaded and unloaded all church equipment and furniture in vans. We set up the church every Sunday for Sunday School and Worship Service and disassemble and reload everything before departing the church building. All other services and church activities as The Men, Women and Youth Bible studies, Marriage Ministry, Fall Fun Festivals, Thanksgiving, Angel Tree and Christmas Dinners are held in the home of the Pastor Gary and First Lady Debbie. 


On Sunday, March 16, 2020, Provision moved to a bigger and more efficient church building located at 4312 Monroe Road. Unfortunately, the same week we prepared to have our first service at the new location, we were faced with having to close church because of the COVID- 19 virus pandemic. The church has remained closed and worship services have continued by zoom meetings and the church webpage. 


While patiently and obediently waiting on God for further direction of His plans for us, Provision is diligently working to receive our 501©(3) tax exemption status, working on our church webpage and other methods of giving for tithes and offerings. We, the members of Provision Community Church are seeking God’s voice to lead, guide and direct us in His mission and vision for this ministry and to reveal to us when and where He permanently desires Provision Community Church to reside.
