Pastor R. L. Crochet & First Lady Evangelist Cynthia Crochet Mount Zion Christ Holy Sanctified Church 6300 Hartman Lane Fort Worth, Texas 76119 http://www.mtzionchsc.org Mt. Zion started in the home of the late Pastor Charles and Corine Jimerson in 1982. As the church grew, Mt. Zion began having services at Jimerson Funeral Home. By this time, the church membership had grown to over 40 members. We had wonderful leaders, hard working and dedicated members who wanted the best for our church. Although we were small in number, we were determined to have our own church built. With the grace of God, we purchased a parcel of land on the corner of Hartman and Dorsey. Mt. Zion broke ground at 6300 Hartman in January 1984. Construction took less than five months. In May 1984, we held our first services in our new sanctuary. Mt. Zion had begun a new era. We were one of the fastest growing churches in the Christ Holy Sanctified Church of America, Inc. organization. We won the Bishop King award for adding the most members to a church. Again, we started facing the dilemma of running out of space for our members. Pastor Charles Jimerson knew we had to build again. Unfortunately, due to the untimely death of Pastor Charles Jimerson he was not able to see that vision come to pass. However, Pastor Corine Jimerson and the members were determined to keep the vision alive. In 1995, we entered another era when Mt. Zion purchased land directly behind our church and made it a parking lot. Soon after that, we begin construction of the new sanctuary. We broke ground in August 1994, added additional offices, classrooms, and a larger fellowship hall. God blessed us to finish construction and conduct service in our new sanctuary in December 1995. The vision of having a great church is still strong. We purchased additional land south of the existing parking lot. With continued growth, Pastor Jimerson knew we still needed a larger fellowship hall. Through determination and hard work from Pastor Crochet, Pastor Emeritus Jimerson and all the members of Mt. Zion, we built the Charles E. Jimerson Fellowship Hall. Because of prayer, fasting, hard work, perseverance and dedication to this membership, the vision and to God, we have achieved insurmountable goals. Our journey continues. . .
