Church History

Island Alliance Church is a Christian & Missionary Alliance Church that began as a bible study in a home in Kent Island Estates in 1987, with Rev. Jeff Ernst coming shortly thereafter as the church planting pastor. Since then, Island Alliance has held services in a fire station, a school cafeteria, and two office buildings. In 1990, Rev. Tim Allen came as the pastor. In 1997, God opened the door for us to purchase the former Kent Island Building Supply location. Rev. Thomas Leonard came in 2004 as the third pastor and he continues to serve presently. A number of renovations to the main building, including a restoration from tornado damage in 2017, has made it into a wonderful home for our church family. Rev. Craig Fadel joined the church staff in September 2021 and has helped bring us to our next chapter of multiplying disciples, servant-leaders, and new churches.
