Our story

Joshua 24:15 (KJV) And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Preparing families to serve the Lord is the major focus of Dr. Daniel L. Smith, Sr. and his lovely wife, Eva, who in 1993 became the founders and pastors of the Ahoskie Christian Center in Ahoskie, North Carolina. The Smiths have been saved since 1980 and both are effective speakers who enjoy the good news of Jesus Christ.

Dr. Smith, a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, boldly teaches principles of “faith, family, and finances” in an atmosphere of love and excitement. In addition to giving executive leadership to the ministry, he serves on several non-profit boards that minister to the various needs of the community.

Eva Smith, a native of Cofield, North Carolina, is a godly woman who has been prepared by God for ministry in the twenty-first century. Although she has served in many leadership positions in the church, her main passion in the ministry is for Christian Education. She hosts monthly women’s fellowships and shares executive leadership of the church.

The Smiths have been married since 1989. They have five children and ten grandchildren. Watching their family and other families in the church grow to new heights has been the catalyst that keeps this duo filled with energy and life. 

Dr. and Mrs. Smith believe that God is doing something special in Ahoskie, North Carolina. They invite you and your family to visit the Ahoskie Christian Center and experience the love and excitement of a church that is committed to the will of God.
