Find Your Purpose. Find Your Place.
Welcome to First Assembly of God church in Bristol. Just as our city is known as "A Good Place to Live", First Assembly is a good place to grow! At our church, we strive to lift up Jesus in a way that reaches out to you and your family, our community, and to the world.
We are a member of the Assemblies of God Appalachian District, and are honored to serve Southwest Virginia/East Tennessee and the surrounding Tri-Cities area. We have many opportunities for you and your family to be involved, and we welcome you to visit us during one of our regular services or special events. We have ministries available for all ages from nursery to seniors. Come join us and find your place!
Grow with us. Learn with us.
Each week, Pastor Carico shares a Weekly Greeting on his blog, and two new devotional videos relative to topics from his sermons called Sunday Reflection. These tools are made available to help us grow in our spiritual lives together as a congregation. We encourage you to check them out each week, and grow with us!
Greetings From Our Pastor
Pastor Jeff & Donna Carico
On behalf of myself and family, I would like to welcome you to the church family of First Assembly of God. I am Rev. Jeffrey L. Carico, Senior Pastor of First Assembly, and my wife of 32 years is Donna W. Carico. We have three children. I grew up in Wise County, Virginia, graduated the University of Virginia's College at Wise with a B. A. in American History in 1982. After graduation, I felt the call of God to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Upon the completion of the required studies and experience, I became an ordained minister of the Assemblies of God in 1990. Following service positions of Youth/Music Pastor at St. Paul Assembly of God in St. Paul, Virginia, and Senior Pastor of Faith Assembly of God in Ferrum, Virginia, I accepted the call of Senior Pastor of First Assembly of God in Bristol, Virginia in June 1992. I believe God has placed First Assembly in the city of Bristol to be a source of evangelism and training for the Kingdom of God in our city and surrounding area. I invite you to join us as we birth the fruit of the kingdom into our area!
May God Richly Bless You,
Pastor Carico & Family
