The Mount Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church was established in 1879. The earliest available records did not mention the First Pastor by name. The original church building, located at 2814 Lebanon Road, was built by hand by Mr. Jim and West Hockett. The land on which it was built was a gift from Mr. Andrew Price.


The first known pastor was Rev. G.K Wilson who led the church from 1905-1908.  In 1926 Rev. Oscar Owens was called to lead the church. During the pastoral leadership of Rev Oscar Owens, the original  building erected  was moved to 210 Eddings Lane in Donelson Tn.
