Pastor Varney was arrested twice in 2016 for uncharacteristic behavior. The church said at that time the pastor had been undergoing dialysis for kidney failure and his medical condition was directly responsible for the actions leading to the arrest.

Pastor Greg Varney and his wife Debbie founded the church in 1985. The church has met at their current location since 1993.
