In January of 2000, our Senior Pastors, Bubba & Tracy McCann, began dreaming of starting a church where people like you could begin a relationship with Jesus and see their lives built on the foundation of the Bible. The dream was to start a church that was life-giving, spirit-filled and would emphasize reaching people and building lives. With clear direction from God and the blessing of their pastor, Bubba and Tracy along with their family moved from Broussard, LA to Jennings, LA to plant Our Savior’s Church Jennings.
That dream became reality as a handful of people gathered in the ballroom of a Holiday Inn. It was a time of anticipation and prayer. Pastor Bubba and that initial OSC group focused on reaching out to the non-churched community and building relationships throughout the city.
The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday Celebrations, and the simple style of Our Savior’s Church brought growth. Over the next seven years land and buildings would be acquired to accommodate the many people coming to faith in Jesus.
Then, in September of 2007, God had another exciting step for OSC. Our second location launched in Eunice, LA and OSC became one church in two locations. That first Sunday, over 207 people attended the new OSC Eunice campus. In September of 2014, OSC grew even larger by planting its third location in Crowley, Louisiana. That first Sunday, over 185 people attended at the Crowley Rice Theatre. OSC is one church meeting in three locations.
OSC’s story is still unfolding and continuing to grow today like never before. During the last fifteen years, the church has grown and changed quite a bit, but what hasn't changed is our purpose to make disciples and plant churches by “Reaching People and Building Lives.”
Even with our growth, we have never lost site of our original dream. You will never be a number at OSC! We are known as the friendly church, and there's a reason why. We know that God deeply cares for you as an individual and so do we. This carries over into everything we do at OSC. We offer contemporary, Biblically driven worship services that are alive with energy and creativity as well as excellent and exciting children's and student ministries. And yes, we’re still as friendly as the first day we met.
If you haven't been our guest, we invite you to experience a worship service at one of our three locations.
