Jumping Run Church was founded in the late 1800's by a group of Christian men and women of the Institute Community in Lenoir County. These men and women were determined to establish a place of worship. The name of the church was derived from an early custom that required worshippers to actually run and jump to cross the run, which is a narrow creek, to get to the sanctuary. There has been many pastors over the years and many changes.

Pastors W. Anthony & Della W. Lawson have been leading the congregants at Jumping Run Church, Inc. since July 1986. Under their leadership, the church experienced a Biblical transition, which brought about revolutionary change and growth. Pastors Anthony & Della, along with the congregants, have worked tirelessly to carry out the God-given vision of the ministry: " Reach The Lost & Teach The Found."

Since the church is a group of people who have been called out of the world, redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus and regenerated by the power of the Holy Spirit, Jumping Run is a church that is committed to do the will of God. The function of the church of Jesus Christ is two-fold: (1) Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature; (2) Teach them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.

Our Mission at Jumping Run Church, Inc. is to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ for Christian service and the work of ministry. Jumping Run Church, Kinston is led by Pastor Al and Tenisha Coleman.

Jumping Run Church, Inc, history continues to unfold as we continue to walk by faith and not by sight.  To God be the glory for the great things He has done, is doing, and will be doing through believers at Jumping Run Church, Inc. We believe and know that the best is yet to come.
