Weekly Attendance: 1,695

Location: Weaverville, North Carolina 

The Role: The Groups Pastor has the great privilege of leading Brookstone's congregation to connect in circles of healthy, disciple-making small groups.


Meet Brookstone Church:

Brookstone Church, formerly North Asheville Baptist Church, has long stood as a testimony to God’s faithfulness since our church was called into existence in 1910. First located on Forsythe Street in North Asheville, the church was a satellite of First Baptist Church of Asheville. NABC grew in membership and influenced the community with the gospel of Christ.​

​In 2001, the church fellowship moved into a multi-purpose building on the same site. The original, brick building now houses Reynolds Mountain Christian Academy, established in 1999 as a ministry of NABC, originally under the name North Asheville Christian School. ​

On Easter Sunday 2017, after 106 years under the same name, North Asheville Baptist Church officially became Brookstone Church in anticipation of our upcoming move to a new, 100-acre campus in Weaverville. The church celebrated Opening Day at its new location on November 12, 2017. This new campus will enable our church family to reach thousands of people with the Good News of God’s love for them in Christ! Moving forward, we will have space for an ever-expanding ministry, including large worship space, conference facilities, classrooms, counseling ministries, a community park, gymnasium, worship pavilions, prayer walks, and much more! This is all with the ultimate goal of serving our community and equipping God’s people of all ages to live intentionally every day.
