OUR STORY + OUR TEAM
Originating as a church plant of Summit Church of Estero, Legacy Church was officially launched in March 2009. Amazingly, twelve different ministry organizations joined together in partnership to firmly establish Legacy Church.
During the first two years, Sunday gatherings were held at the Summit Church campus near the Florida Gulf Coast University. Then, on Easter Day, April 2011, Legacy Church relocated offsite into a 5,200 SF facility located at the SE corner of US Highway 41 and Estero Parkway.
Subsequently, due to continued growth in the church and community, on Easter Day, March 2016, Legacy Church relocated once again to its current 10,000 SF facility on the north side of Corkscrew Road near the Estero Community Center.
Today, Legacy Church continues to endeavor in its strategic efforts in impacting the Estero Community for the Kingdom of God.
