The Rev. Jeff and Patti Higbie knew God was urging them elsewhere.
After an enjoyable dozen years with their Assembly of God congregation in Iberia, they "laid out the fleece," saying if the lord wants them to move, the right congregation will contact them.
In December 2010, the Rev. Roy Bennett and his wife, Hazel, who had served there for eight years, were planning to retire and felt God calling the Higbies as their replacements.
They knew Calvary Assembly of God was the divinely-appointed place for them.
"The first time I preached here, I knew instantaneously this was going to be home," Higbie said of the Jefferson City church, located at 704 Rock Hill Road.
