As a teenager, Pastor Ingle was a Bible Quizzer. As captain of the team, he and his teammates placed first in the nation in 1986, fourth in the nation in 1987, and second in the nation in 1988. He was the second highest scoring individual in the nation in 1986 and the Quizzer of the Year in 1990. Pastor Ingle won a scholarship for Bible College and briefly attended Jackson College of Ministries from January through May of 1990. Upon returning home for the summer, he accepted the role of Youth Pastor at his home church.
Pastor Ingle served as Youth Pastor at the United Pentecostal Church of Durham from 1991 until August 1996, two and a half years of which he was full time on the staff. He left Durham to start a new church in Kernersville.
The church in Kernersville was started at 202 W. Bodenheimer St. and quickly outgrew those small facilities. In September of 1999, the congregation of fifty moved to the current location of 1225 Piney Grove Rd. The staff has grown from Pastor Ingle to several employees. The congregation has grown from zero to a full house each Sunday, in addition to the two daughter works birthed: Denton, N.C. (pastored by Rev. Ronnie Timmons), and N. Wilkesboro, N.C. (pastored by Rev. Jonathan Russell). In the fall of 2008, the church family paid off a fifteen year mortgage in less than eight years, and in May of 2009, they purchased 13.29 acres across the street from their present facilities. This new property will serve as the location of their new sanctuary. In addition to the recent purchase of 13.29 acres, the church also purchased an adjacent piece of property and a 2,700 square foot home. The church has a guest quarters which is used for missionaries and special speakers. In April of 2016, the church broke ground on their new 6,000 square foot Family Life Center, and, on February 1, 2017, the church obtained the Certificate of Occupancy.
