Word of Life Family Church was founded by Pastor Randy Parnell in the Sparksville community of Adair County in the early 1980's. Originally named Eagles Nest Full Gospel Assembly, the church began as a small group Bible study that quickly grew, necessitating the building of the first sanctuary in 1984. After several building remodels and expansions, and nearly two decades of fruitful ministry and growth, the church moved to Columbia. After the move in August of 2002, the ministry became known as Word of Life Family Church.
For more than a quarter of a century, the vision of Word of Life Family Church has been and continues to be to strengthen families, equip believers, heal the hurting and reach the lost of South-Central Kentucky and the World with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
