HISTORY

OUR BEGINNING

Canal Street Church: A Mosaic Community has a rich history of ministry in New Orleans. The story begins with the Canal Street Presbyterian Church that began as the Seaman’s Bethel Church in 1843. It is believed this was the first church to hold regular English services in the French Quarter. After several moves, the church moved to its current location in 1927 as Canal Street Presbyterian Church. 

CHANGING SEASONS

In 2011, Mosaic Church, a Baptist affiliated church plant, began meeting in the building as church plant. God started opening the doors for two major opportunities. First, Canal Street Presbyterian Church withdrew from their denomination. Second, Mosaic and Canal Street sensed the Spirit leading them to become one church.  In order to maintain property Canal Street Presbyterian Church was “dismissed” from their denomination to the Evangelical Covenant Church. At the same time, Canal Street and Mosaic Church merged in 2012, maintaining their affiliations (Baptist and Evangelical Covenant). Today, the church maintains the affiliations but is a local, autonomous church body under the Lordship of Christ. We choose to affiliate with these larger groups to be accountable, be on mission, and maximize our impact in the community and around the world.

WHERE WE ARE NOW

Since 2012, the ministries of the church have expanded to include multiple churches and church plants, along with the community development ministry, The Restoration Initiative. Our multiple affiliations have allowed us to bring together the best of each background into a unique “Gumbo” that can only happen in New Orleans. We started the Mosaic Churches and Ministries network that seeks  to be “parish” churches (to borrow a Louisiana term) where we focus on the local community and neighborhood.
