Franklin Heights Church joins the Agape Center

Stan Parris is senior pastor for Franklin Heights Church in Rocky Mount.

Franklin Heights Church in Rocky Mount is the most recent addition to the Agape Center’s list of member churches.

With the help of senior pastor Stan Parris, the church has ministry locations throughout Franklin County. CrossPointe Church opened in 2012 in Burnt Chimney and became associated with the Agape Center in 2015, after its members proposed partnering with the nonprofit to help meet physical and spiritual needs of the area.

“The heart and calling of Franklin Heights Church is to love Franklin County, and partnering with Agape is a practical way to do that,” Parris said. “I believe in the ministry of Agape.”

The church’s Union Hall campus opened in 2017. The sermons are streamed to Union Hall from CrossPointe each Sunday.

“With three fully functioning campuses, the relationship with Agape has been strengthened, providing three sources of client referrals, and increased access for volunteers and leadership expertise from Franklin County for the organization,” said Sue Lipscomb, executive director of the Agape Center.
