Elevation Church is



Elevation Church began as a dream in 2009. Pastor Todd Hamilton and his family dreamed of starting a church that would help people experience what they were experiencing in a relationship with Jesus and His church. The dream became reality in January 2011 when 12 people gathered in the Hamiltons’ living room to worship, pray, and discover God’s truth together. Within 6 months the group outgrew the living room and moved to leased facilities. The church continues to grow through our mission of leading people to know Jesus personally, grow in faith through relationships, and go share the love of Christ with others.


From the beginning there have been ups and downs, trials and victories, successes and setbacks, but God has carried Elevation Church through them all. Pastor Todd believes in preaching the Bible in a straight-forward way that helps you apply what you are learning right away. We encourage everyone to get involved in the life of the church through volunteering and small groups because we have found this is the best way to help people know Jesus, grow in faith, and go share the love of God with others.

Student Ministry


Our 7th Grade – 12th graders gather for fellowship, worship, and teaching. We also have periodic events and activities to build relationships, grow our faith, and just have fun. We strive to equip our students to become committed followers of Jesus, to develop a growing faith, and go show His love to a world that desperately needs Him.

Small Groups

Our mission is to lead people to know Jesus, grow in faith through relationships, and go share the love of God with others. We believe small groups are the best place to form the kind of relationships that lead us to grow in faith. Our groups gather in living rooms and kitchens all around the community to discuss God, the Bible, life, and how it all works together. These groups are a great source of encouragement, support, and accountability and are often the foundation for life-long friendships. Groups meet for three trimesters (Winter, Spring, and Fall) with break from Thanksgiving to Christmas and over the summer.

Please contact Bethany Thornton bethany@ectxmail.org for more information.

The men of Elevation Church meet monthly (2nd Saturday, 8:00a-9:30a). The mission for this ministry is to promote being men of significance in our homes, church, workplace, and community.

Worship Gathering


Welcome to Elevation Church! Our Sunday worship gatherings are built around being a welcoming experience for you and your family. Elevation Church is a ‘no perfect people allowed’ kind of church, meaning you’ll find yourself right at home with the imperfect school teachers, CEOs, motorcyclers, stay-at-home moms, sales professionals, and everyone else.

Our worship music is contemporary and gospel-centered. The preaching is straight-forward, honest, and seasoned with grace. Everything you will experience in a Sunday worship gathering is designed to point you toward knowing Jesus personally, growing in your faith, and going out and sharing God’s love with others. That is our purpose for existing, and it flavors everything we do.

You are invited to gather and worship with us every Sunday at 10:00am!





Our position on giving is simple and biblical. In the Old Testament God ordained the tithe (10% giving) as a way of helping His people trust Him and not money or things. The tithe money was used to do ministries such as caring for the poor as well as to support the ministers, themselves (Numbers 18:21).
