Church History


In 1997, God gave Pastor Gregory L. Drake a vision to plant a church. God admonished him to help change a generation and make a noticeable difference in the community.

The first service of the Jubilee Community Church was held on April 6, 2003. Fifty-one people attended the service, and 3 lives were saved that day. The message preached was "If Jesus puts you on hold, don't hang up." To date, God has blessed our membership to continuously proliferate!

For the first few years we leased 106 Lyndalyn from the Lion's Club for our Sunday worship services as well as our worship service during the week. As a result of Pastor Drake hearing God's voice and believing upon the Word spoken to him that "we shall have buildings that we did not build", Jubilee experienced a takeover on January 25, 2008 and we purchased all 3 buildings on the campus of Lyndalyn Ave. In 2012, God also blessed us to purchase Carrell Stadium sitting on 5 acres of land at 200 Lion Street in Desoto, Texas. Please come and experience the excitement at our 9:30 a.m. Worship Celebration! God is continuously doing some great things at Jubilee!

Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
