Pinelake’s Story:

The story of Pinelake Church began in February of 1971 in Brandon, Mississippi in a mobile chapel in a rural area near The Reservoir. By God’s grace and power, our faith family has grown into a dynamic church spanning five cities throughout our state -- Clinton, Madison, Oxford, the Reservoir, Starkville, and our online campus. Weekly, we serve over 12,000 people, but we celebrate stories of life change one person at a time.

Reservoir Campus:

Pinelake Church started in 1971 in the community we call the Reservoir. Today, the Reservoir campus welcomes over 5500 people every week to one of our worship gatherings. This campus draws attendees from the Metro-Jackson area, the Reservoir community, and beyond! Our student ministry connects to hundreds of youth through the 56 (PreTeen) Ministry, 78 Ministry & High School Ministry! Learn more about our Reservoir campus -
