1930 - 1984     Brave, PA

The history of First Assembly goes back almost 90 years when our church was founded through "cottage home prayer meetings" in the village of Brave, Pennsylvania.


Evangelist Walter C. Long, from Flintstone, Maryland, conducted evangelistic tent meetings in Brave during the summer of 1930. When a congregation was established, Reverend Long became the first pastor of the church.


The church officially associated with the General Council of the Assemblies of God (headquarters in Springfield, Missouri).


The congregation acquired the Maple Grove School in Brave as its first permanent home.

1984 - Present     Waynesburg, pa

Sensing a need to relocate closer to the town of Waynesburg, in 1980 the church purchased 8 acres of property on PA Route 21 in the village of Eastview, outside of Waynesburg. A new church facility including a sanctuary and Christian education rooms was dedicated on Easter Sunday, 1984.


A new 9600 square foot Family Life Center was dedicated in July 2005.

As a result of our long and deep history, First Assembly is a multi-generational church family with a rich history.
