Our Story

Our story begins with conversations in the late 1970s, when a group of people started to pray and think seriously about planting a church in Ann Arbor. These conversations took shape when families began to meet regularly in the living room in anticipation of a new church starting in Ann Arbor.

The first worship service of Knox was held at Tappen Middle School on September 13th, 1992. We had no idea how many people were going to be there. There were 410 people in attendance.

Rapid growth in the congregation over a relatively short period was encouraging and challenging – encouraging to see others joining us in following Jesus; challenging that as a relatively new church, we had to consider building a campus to accommodate our growing church family.

In January 2000, we moved to our current location on Wagner Road as we outgrew the space at Tappan Middle School. Since then, many people have been equipped at Knox and gone to places around the globe to live out a gospel that impacts every dimension of life.

God has been so kind and faithful to our church community, and we love being a part of what He’s doing here in Ann Arbor and beyond.
