History of Daystar

gunshop On a Saturday night in January of 1995, a group of seven met in Jerry and Paula Ashley's living room of a small block house in Summerville, SC. As the word began to spread and weekly the meetings grew, it became apparent that they needed more space to worship and hear the word. God was doing something special, so on January 25, 1997, Daystar Ministries began.

The young congregation moved into a building at 109 Holiday Dr. in Summerville. Affectionately referred to as the gun shop, it had previously housed a camping and hunting supply store. Growth and interest continued. Weekends with teachers and prophetic voices like Al Houghton, Robin McMillian, Matt Peterson and Steve Thompson attracted believers from all over the Charleston, SC region. Once a month, the church worked with the MorningStar School of Ministry to offer opportunities for ministry to their students. It became apparent that the gun shop was too small for the congregation.

grocery In August 2000, they leased the building at 100 W. Richardson Ave. in downtown Summerville. The storefront had been built as a grocery store and the 10,000 sq. ft. building needed major renovations before DayStar Church could move in. The congregation took up the challenge. Members experienced in carpentry, HVAC, plumbing and electrical worked together. Finally, everything was ready and the entire congregation celebrated the dedication of their new home. Members of MorningStar Ministries' team, as friends and covering of the young ministry, prayed and prophesied over them.
