The Parowan Congregation first officially assembled for Worship, Sunday, July 2, 2000. It resulted from the working of the Holy Spirit, combined enthusiastic Vision and Guidance of then District Superintendent, Reverend Eddie Kelemeni, Dr. Douglas A. & Reverend Jeri Lee Harrell and Lay Persons desiring a Church Home in Iron County, Utah to meet Spiritual and Social Desires and Needs. The Harrells were assigned as Co-Pastors by the Bishop of the Rocky Mountain Conference.

Dedication From the beginning, the Congregation has been described by visitors and newcomers as "Very Spiritual", "Friendly", "Warm Hearted", and "Resolutely Missional". 7 Lay Speakers represent a wide range of Denominational, Economical and Social backgrounds. They assist in Worship and other Parish Ministries. The Congregation is ecumenical and inclusive and from several denominations.

The Congregation was graciously welcomed by Leaders and Members of The Assembly of Jesus Christ, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Red Hills Southern Baptist Church and other Iron County Congregations.
