Meet Mountain Life Church:

Mountain Life Church began in the summer of 1992 with four families who saw a need for a solid, Bible-teaching church in the greater Park City area. Their humble beginnings led them to rent space at Carden Christian Academy (now Park City Day School) to meet for Sunday services. After a year of meeting together, the church hired Pastor Scott Fine to lead Mountain Life as its first full-time pastor. After meeting in rented space for 10 years, Mountain Life built and moved into our current facility on Silver Creek Road in January 2002. The church has grown in many ways since our humble beginnings as a small core group in 1992.
