  • Lead Pastor

    Rev. Shannon, Heather, Clara, and Katie Brown

    Shannon Brown is the lead pastor of ILCC. He grew up in the upstate of SC and is a die hard Clemson fan. He was called to ministry as a teenager and began working in student ministry. While in student ministry, he started organizing youth rallies and concert events. The Lord used this experience to open an opportunity to move to Nashville and work on the business side of the music industry. Before moving to Nashville, he met Heather and the two fell hopelessly in love. They married and moved to TN to start their life together. After about 20 years of working with Christian, pop, and country acts God called him out of the music industry and back into traditional church ministry. Other than student ministry, he has served as a Small Group Pastor and Associate Pastor since leaving the music business. The Lord has guided Shannon and Heather into church planting and as a result they are starting Indian Land Community Church. Shannon has his Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies and Ministry from LeTourneau University and Master's from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. 

    Heather Brown was born in NC and grew up in Valdosta GA. She holds a BA in Psychology from Valdosta State University. Her calling is focused in the marketplace where she is an executive with Ross Dress for Less stores. Throughout her career, God has allowed her to impact the lives of so many people who may not have set foot inside a church or other Christian organization. She knows that her job is her ministry and utilizes every opportunity to show the love of Christ to all God puts in her path. Heather is passionate about small group ministry and has experienced the impact it has on people. When life is lived in relationship, people can be real with each other and face life struggles with support from a loving community. Heather is excited to see what God does next! 

  • Student Pastor

    Michael, Brandi, Isaiah, Pierce, and Jackie

    Blessing to all. May this day be filled with God’s blessings and loving presence He has for you in your life journey. My name is Michal Davis. I am the Student Pastor for Next Gen at Indian Land Community Church. I am a native of Kannapolis, NC (aka Dale Earnhardt Country). At the age of sixteen God spoke a word to my family pastor, that God has a calling over my life to speak truth and love to the next generation. After about a decade of selfishly living my own path, God gripped my heart with those words again. At that point in my life, I surrendered to His will and purpose he had for me. What a blessing it has been since that awakening moment to follow Christ, living out His purpose here on earth.  

    My mission is to equip and empower the next generation to experience a fully alive life through a growing relationship with God’s son Jesus. My prayer is for the Next Generation to be confident in their identity in Christ and to share their faith and His unfailing love to a fallen and broken world, so that others will be impacted by Jesus’ love in their life.  

    I am beyond blessed by God to be married to my beautiful bride Brandi.  We are a blended family with three loving kiddos: Jackie, Pierce and Isaiah.  

    Thank you for taking the time to check us out. I hope you will come worship with us! 

    In HIS Hands, 

    Student Pastor Michael Davis
