THE REIMAGE CHURCH STORY

Pastor John and Deborah Zabawski, originally from Cleveland, Ohio, traveled as evangelists
throughout several states ministering the word of God in seminars, full gospel businessmen’s
fellowships, Women’s Aglow meetings, and churches. They began a radio broadcast, “Voice of
Faith,” in Greenville, NC on November 23, 1979. While conducting a series of meetings in
Greenville’s Rotary Building, the Lord spoke to Pastor John and asked him to “feed His sheep”
in Greenville. The following month, Pastor John and Debbie moved their belongings from Ohio
and established Faith & Victory Church on Sunday, June 1, 1980.
The church was originally located on 10th street near Dickinson Avenue. Due to a consistent
growth in attendance, the church purchased a gymnasium in August of 1984 from Carolina
Country Day (formerly Karl B. Pace Academy). This facility was located off State Road 1708
(now known as Fire Tower Road) and was the cornerstone of the church’s present campus. In
1986 the church purchased the remnants of Pace Academy – four brick buildings located
adjacent to the sanctuary building. Church leaders soon realized the importance of a long-term
plan, so in the summer of 1991 and spring of 1992, the church purchased approximately 11 acres
of land located next to the brick buildings for future development.

In 2006 the church built the new facilities that include a 1100 seat sanctuary and a children’s
building that houses up to 250 children on Sundays and doubles as a daycare during the week
providing childcare to up to 150 children everyday. In 2008 Pastor John began working toward
passing the church to the next generation through a series of messages. Seeing the culture
change, the church name was changed from Faith and Victory to Reimage. In 2017, leadership
was transitioned to the new lead pastor, Chris Hopkins. After a season of restructuring and
shifting during the Covid-19 pandemic, Reimage Church is entering a season of focused growth
and intentionality towards being a mission minded church.
Reimage believes that God has uniquely positioned the church for greater Kingdom impact. In

the coming years, they are laying the ground work to launch a Dream Center and plant micro-
churches throughout the city. Reimage Church is diverse racially, generationally, and

socioeconomically. This diversity gives them the unique position to impact the community
which they are excited to minister to!
