Out of an extraordinary revival which took place in the school house on Big Scary Creek in 1936, a group of people organized the Scott Depot Church of God. In 1938, the congregation purchased property on Teays Valley Road and erected the first church building. In 1951, the church moved across the road to its current location. In order to be broader in its outreach, the church became non-denominational in 1978 and changed its name to the Scott Depot Christ Fellowship.
The church opened the Teays Valley Child Development Center in 1974, and it has become one of the best and most popular child care centers in our state. In 1979, Teays Valley Christian School was established and it has developed a reputation as one of the most outstanding Christian schools in our region of the country. We are one of two Christian schools in the state with dual accreditation through ACSI and North Central.
The Scott Depot Christ Fellowship embarked a few years ago upon a great adventure in ministry which the church calls God's "Wheel of Fire." The "Wheel of Fire" is a model and a vision for the church to glorify God by revealing God's love and fulfilling God's purposes. The model sets forth the source, center and power of all true ministry as the knowing of God in spiritual experience.
Recently, God has set before the church a new and greater vision. The Scott Depot Christ Fellowship is now calling itself "The Depot" - a church that is called to be heaven's outpost on the earth - a base of operations for the Kingdom of God - a group of people through whom God can touch and transform our local community and our world by His love and grace and the power of His Spirit.
The Depot has been known for its high quality of music for many years. In recent years, new and exciting styles of music have been introduced to create a dynamic and anointed worship experience.
The Depot has become one of the fastest growing churches in the area and is claiming its calling to be "a church on the move" and to live out its passion: "To bring life in Christ to our church, our community, our country and our world."
