Generation Church has been called to plant deep roots in WNC. We are a family committed to cultivating an environment where everyone can "Encounter Love and Discover Purpose." We believe Kingdom Culture looks like one generation, young and old, joining together in the pursuit of Christ.
Our underlying pursuit is to love God.
Prayer is our first response, not our last resort.
We welcome the Holy Spirit in every capacity.
We disciple a generation to grow in God and in purpose.
We believe a culture of honor and respect is to be given to all ages, races and backgrounds.
We are reaching our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are committed to seeing brokenness met by Jesus.
Community is our culture, not a status or obligation.
We are a generation of every age and every race.
We are a vehicle of hope, truth and love for our city.
Sam & Eliza Fine
FOUNDERS & PASTORS
After serving as Family Life Pastors in Atlanta, GA, Sam and Eliza moved to Asheville in 2002. With an early beginning comprised of worship & prayer nights, and weekly discipleship gatherings in their home, God birthed a new church. The Fines are passionate for Jesus, His purpose and people. They desire to see a generation (comprised of all ages, social-economic backgrounds & races) built together in vibrant family, marked by the presence of God, encounter, transformation; and who, as a result, are agents of His love to the community of Western NC.
Both Sam and Eliza are avid coffee drinkers, who greatly enjoy dating each other, creating family memories, quality time with friends and game nights. They both enjoy being outdoors, including “walkie-talkies”, going on hikes and wholeheartedly welcome any opportunity at the beach. Sam loves to fish, hunt, and Home Depot runs. Eliza enjoys baking with the GRANDS, reading and has recently discovered a love to run.
Sam and Eliza, who have been married over thirty years, greatly love each other and the adventure of life together. They have six incredible children (raised four & gained two additional by marriage): Samuel (& Marissa), Amy, Elise (& Matthew) and Jeremy. They also have five wonderful GRANDS: Grayson, Charlotte, Uriah, Abel & Elora.
