Expansion is an initiative of the Appalachian Conference of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church to impact our four state region (Virginia, West Virginia, E. Kentucky and E. Tennessee).
The Appalachian Conference is a strong and developed conference with a rich history dating back to 1910. With a foundation that was laid nearly one hundred years ago and a constant striving to expand the Kingdom of God, we are currently part of one of the fastest growing movements in the world.
The IPHC is experiencing the greatest growth season of its history, expanding by almost three churches and a thousand members each day during the last quadrennium.

We at Expansion believe the local church is the single most effective tool to reach the world for Jesus Christ. Armed with this knowledge and our firm belief that “if one can put a thousand to flight, two can put ten-thousand,” we think the greatest need in the church today is for local churches to join arms to further enhance our ability to reach our communities. Our mission is to plant new churches, revitalize existing churches, and to network with like-minded ministries to fulfill the call of the Great Commission.

Forget your old ideas about denominations!
We do not want to control your church, nor do we want your properties. We believe in your ministry and understand, that together, we can accomplish so much more for the Kingdom. By joining Expansion, you will not compromise your effectiveness; you will expand it.
When you think of Expansion, we want you to think of a network of Spirit-filled churches with a shared passion to reach our communities with the life-changing message we possess. That’s what Expansion is all about. Join us! Together, we can change the world, as we harness the amazing power of the local church with the firm foundation of a strong and developed conference. Please accept this as your official invitation to link arms with this powerful network of believers.
