Our Story

Higher Purpose Church in Mooresville, NC strives to live out the Biblical command to love God, each other and our neighbors well.  This means worshipping and following Jesus Christ not only through our words, but also through the lives we lead.

Pastor Lawrence Williams began his ministry in 2005 after relocating to Mooresville with his wife Dr. TanYa Gwathmey Williams and their two daughters, Victoria and Arianna.  Since the ministry first began with 12 people in a Bible study at the Wingate Inn, HPC has been focused on making a difference in the community.  Over the years, God has used the ministry to impact Mooresville and the surrounding area in unique ways.
